French Waves French Waves

Julian Starke / France / 2018 / 65 min / French

In this documentary, the stories of iconic French and international musicians portray the history of French electronic music as seen by the young generation. The film explores the American roots of the movement, illegal early rave parties and the phenomenon that is “French house”, which played an important role in the establishment of electronic music across the world. Above all, it shows how the most recent wave of French artists adopted this heritage as their own.
