A film about the exciting era of vetoed music and culture from the curators of the Bone Music exhibition, Stephen Coates and Paul Heartfield.
An homage to genuine music lovers, who, in spite of state control and the Soviet censorship of last century’s mid-decades, risked their lives by making prohibited “vinyl” records on x-rays. During film production, the curators of the show Bone Music, musician Stephen Coates and photographer Paul Heartfield, interviewed witnesses of the epoch who shared their remembrances of the bold achievements of their youth, and told the filmmakers about the role they played in one of music’s most extraordinary stories in the time of censored culture.
Directors Stephen Coates, Paul Heartfield. UK, 2015. 30 minutes.
