Docs That Rock

The Battle for Moffom

While less of a festival for premieres, the Prague’s Moffom Festival still has a competition. Twelve music docs will take part (with one part of the first place prize being wines from Moravia..mmmm.) They’re not all rock docs – in fact, many are in genres that this blog wants to cover more on occassion but hasn’t. While the full program for all the films in the festival can be downloaded from the Moffom site, here are some highlights of the competition:

  • Kiss Loves You
    Featured earlier in this blog, it’s a maybe too-close look at the KISS Army.
  • Trip to Asia: The Quest for Harmony
    A stunning trailer (see below) that screams “big movie,” this is the story of the Berlin Philharmonic’s recent Asian tour. It’s a classic band film featuring clashing egos, feuds, hubris, the nature of genius – all the good stuff except that the band is made up of 126 members instead of four.
  • Dub Echoes
    A Brazilian film all about the forty year history of dub, the sound that underlies modern beat music.
  • Family Meeting
    When the Finnish Wentus Blues Band celebrates their 20th anniversary, ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson, and more show up to celebrate the blues.
