Special New York Premiere Presentation!
ROMANTIC WARRIORS: KRAUTROCK 1
During the first half of the 1970s, West German bands like KRAFTWERK, CAN and FAUST (all covered extensively here) escaped from pop’s three-minute straitjacket. The results were as astonishing as they were influential, with David Bowie, Radiohead and Sonic Youth all being among those crediting Krautrock as inspiration. Though the term was coined dismissively, many of the bands caught under the “Krautrock” umbrella, came to embrace or celebrate it. Krautrock did not consist of a singular sound, however, but rather, of an entire family of psychedelic, electronic, rock and ethnological styles, often with little in common other than a revolutionary, freedom-seeking spirit, fashioned without American Top 40 radio in mind. Too expansive a topic to be contained within a single program, Romantic Warriors: Krautrock 1 is actually one part of a planned two-part series, support for which will help to make the 2nd part a reality. Should you desire to help out even more, please note that DVD copies of the film – limited to 10 – will be available for purchase at the event!
As with our other ICFS events, expect prizes, surprises, comfy couches and mind-expanding drink specials! Romantic Warriors: Krautrock 1 is not rated, and runs 129 minutes.
