WHAT WE STARTED
2017, Bert Marcus Productions/Abramorama, 94 min, USA, Dir: Bert Marcus, Cyrus Saidi

Through an artfully crafted narrative, powerful cast of superstars and stunning visual techniques, this documentary delves into the highly popular world of electronic dance music, providing backdoor access to a widely misunderstood, self-driven and well-insulated industry on its way to global domination. The film spans the music’s rich history, from its underground inception in late-1980s America to the musicians and fans of the genre who relentlessly fought in the dance clubs and on the streets to find a safe space to express themselves, to the development of this modern, mainstream revolution that has taken the world by storm. Featuring industry pioneers and superstars of today including Carl Cox, Martin Garrix, Moby, Pete Tong, David Guetta, Afrojack, Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Usher and Ed Sheeran, WHAT WE STARTED highlights the current boom in electronic dance music while leaving open the question of what will happen next for this incredible music genre.


Screening format: DCP. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
