« Where does a body end ? » (Marco Porsia, 2019, 2h, vostf)
The most famous Stetson on the big screen!
As Michael Gira and his band release a new album and prepare us for a tour through Brussels next May, EmpreinteS and Kinograph propose to continue the journey to discover Marco Porsia’s documentary.
Combo album-docu-concert always a winner, right?
The Swans, a group that emerged in 1982 on the post-punk scene in New York, are back this year to the delight of our ears. With Michael Gira at the head of the line, there is not much room left here to name the members who have been part of the band for nearly 40 years, both in the studio and on stage.
Who is Michael Gira?
What is this group?
With this documentary, Marco Porsia offers us a portrait of the group, from their beginnings to their current creation, as strong as ever. Unpublished archives and interviews that tell us more about their careers.
Beau. Brutal. Without compromise.
I promise, we’ll make the sound as loud as Michael Gira would like.
And because we like to quote too little Thor Harris: « Michael Gira is not a fearless person, but he is a fearless artist. »
