I Am Gagarin will take you to 1990s Moscow which saw a boom of techno and dance music after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Russia‘s turbulent social and political transformation was captured by director Olga Darfy who was inspired to make the film by the mysterious disappearance of one of the main actors of the club scene at the time. The story of The Doors, on the other hand, was among those that shaped music history. The Doors: When You’re Strange, with its rare 1960s footage, will take you straight to the rock scene of the times shaken by the sudden death of Jim Morrison in 1971. A similarly dark and torn inner world of an artist is revealed in What a Fuck Am I Doing on This Battlefield. The documentary follows the life approach and creative process of contemporary British artist Matt Elliot who makes both folk and electronic music. To get out of the darkness, you can let the temperamental Spanish rhythms shine through your day with Children of Flamenco.
