Some more NZIFF film announcements for ya, this time with a music theme. Following the four announced last week (which you can check out here), there are seven new additions. Let’s start with…
Documentary following LCD Soundsystem as they look to play their final ever concert to a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden.
The New York tribute concert dedicated to Kate McGarrigle, youngest of the McGarrigle sisters, is put on the big screen.
A biography on Sixto Rodriguez, the Mexican-American singer-songwriter whose wondrous music of pain and social protest went unheard in the US, but big in Cape Town, South Africa. Winner of the Audience Award (Documenraty) at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Sigrídur is an elderly Icelandic woman whose love for and talent in music is unbound, having only started recording her pieces in her early 70s (using a cassette recorder her children bought her).
Solo concert film starring the titular man himself, Neil Young.
Seasoned documentarian Eduardo Coutinho invites a number of natives from Rio de Janeiro to choose their favourite songs and express their love for them – through both a description and an a capella performance.
A chaotic three-year insight to Bobby Liebling’s modern-day life, frontman of 70s metal band Pentagram. Starting from a drug-fuelled mess, the film tracks Bobby’s near miraculous resurgence.
