The ultimate arts festival for film buffs and music aficionados alike, Doc'n Roll 2019 will present six feature films that chart the stories of ground-breaking labels.
Blue Note (It Must Schwing! The Blue Note Story) and Trojan (Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records); shine new light on the previously unexplored depths of the Detroit techno scene that would redefine electronic music.
(Never Stop – A Music That Resists); explores the best soundtracks you never knew existed (The Library Music Film); launch you full-pelt into the world of punk's fearless heroines as they break the glass ceiling and blow the genre apart (Stories from The She Punks); and take you behind the scenes with Badly Drawn Boy as he creates his Mercury Prize-winning debut (About A Badly Drawn Boy: The Story of the Hour of Bewilderbeast).
Among a number of live Q&A highlights, expect candid insights from punk pioneer and co-director Helen Reddington (The Chefs) as she discusses She Punks, and The Mitcham Submarine's first-hand account of working with Damon Gough, AKA Badly Drawn Boy, on his cinematic portrait of a unique artist and a seminal album.
This year the festival will also introduce a selection of film shorts especially selected for the 2019 edition.
