In Edit 2013

In Edit 2013

Beefeater IN-EDIT Festival, at its 11th edition, is an international music documentary film festival celebrated in Barcelona and dedicated to all the music and film lovers around the world.

This will be a multi-screen edition, meaning that some films will be broadcasted online simultaneously to the Barcelona premiere, as part of the festival.

SOME OF THE FEATURED DOCUMENTARIES ON THE PROGRAM

Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction

The most peculiar and silent actor in all Hollywood breaks our hearts by talking about his journey and performing some of his favorite melodies. Nocturnal confessions, fragility at point blank range, damage assessment and “Blue Moon” in a broken voice that will make the earth shiver.

 

The Sound of Belgium

Belgians “work hard and party harder.” A clubber travels through the contagious yet obscure Belgian club scene, from the 20’s barrel organ to the 90’s hardcore, passing through the 60’s popcorn and the 80’s newbeat on the road to world domination. A clubland all of its own making.

Nitsa 94/96: el giro electronic

“It all exploded from there”. The legendary Barcelonese club with the revolving dance floor, pioneer of electronica in Spain and cradle to DJ Sideral, explained with loving scratches (Jeff Mills, Angel Molina and more), founders and fans from its birth until the bombastic 90’s.

The Punk Singer

The Punk Singer

The Punk Singer

This is the definitive profile of Kathleen Hanna, frontwoman of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. She lets us into her inner world for the first time: riot grrrl, family, fame, Kurt Cobain, Lyme disease and her return as Julie Ruin. An arduous odyssey; no concessions.

AKA Doc Pomus

All greatness comes from pain. The life of Doc Pomus, composer of numerous hits (for Elvis and others) in a beautiful blues of disability, solitude and perseverance.  The full Hall of Fame sings his praises, from Lou  Reed and Dion, to Phil Spector and Ben E. King.

Check out the full PROGRAM here.

The Flying Dutchman Tatoo, 2013

Today we had the opportunity to meet Herke, “The flying Duthman Tatoo, one of the tattoo artists better considered in Europe, due to his seriousness and for being specialized in tattooing Yokai (creatures half-human, half-animal) . For us, that we don´t have any knowledge in this subject, it has been an introduction to this curious world, that more than curious it´s philosophical. Herke explained that a tattoo could change the energy of the person, give it more strength. But he insisted that before doing a tattoo, the person must think that is for life and not to be swayed by fashion. He makes traditional Japanese art with modern nuances, always respecting the “Yokai” rules. He told us that in these types of tattoos, through a conversation with you, translates your ideas into a design that is just for you, because his tattoos are unique, never printed again in another skin.

The castle was built in the 18th century not to defend Barcelona, but to watch it. Maybe that´s why the Castle of Montjuic is a magnificent place to see the city, specially the port and La Rambla. In the 19th century the castle was used as a prison, and for several decades of the 20th century it was sadly a place of execution. Nowadays the castle is a Military Museum. During July and August its gardens host the Open Air Film Festival Sala Montjuïc, a classical event of the city where the best independent films are shown.

HOW TO GET THERE
