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.

The film features Laurent Garnier, Agoria, Bob Sinclair, Carl Craig, Bambounou, David Blot, Fakear, Fred Agostini, French Fries, Jacques, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jerôme Viger Kohler, Juan Atkins, Manu Casana, Pedro Winter, Philippe Zdar, Rone, Superpoze and Terry Hunter.

Bong Joon-ho

Tuesday, 02. 06. 2020 / 20:00 / Main Hall

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
