MOFFOM 2008 Press Release
Music on film, film on music festival 2008
The international festival of music films is preparing many new surprises!
The inspiring cult movie "Style Wars" traces the development of graffiti and the fast-growing hip-hop subculture in New York in the early 80's.
"From Mambo to Hip Hop: A South Bronx Tale" tells the story about the creative life in southern Bronx, recording the rise of hip-hop and reflecting the power of music.
In 1958, dozens of American jazz legends unexpectedly gathered for a photograph that eventually became the symbol of the golden age of jazz. "A Great Day in Harlem" captures this extraordinary event in the history of jazz.
The documentary "Note By Note: The Making of Steinway L1037" maps the manufacturing process of the Steinway L1037 piano.
Last but not least, this section includes Mel Brooks' 1968 legendary comedy "The Producers" featuring Zero Mostel.
One of these is the legendary "Baraka" and the similar "Laya Project" , a compilation of contributions by musicians originating from areas devastated by the 2004 Tsunami. The film pays both a personal and collective musical homage to the endurance of the human soul, dedicated to those who survived.
The movie „What About Me?" is another visionary project by 1 Giant Leap, a.k.a Jamie Catto, the former singer of Faithless and producer Duncan Bridgeman. Through music, Catto and Bridgeman explore the complexity of the human essence on a global scale. Theirs is an account of how we are all interconnected through our creativity and faith.
"Heima: a film by Sigur Ros" records a series of concerts of the Icelandic band Sigur Rós in their home country. This section also includes the black-and-white film "Middle of the Moment", which is accompanied by the beautiful music of composer Fred Firth, presented at last year's MOFFOM Festival.
Petr Dorůžka (music critic, one of the 7 Samurajs of the Womex World Music Festival),
Saša Michailidis (director of Radio1 and presenter of his own program called "Film at 5 o'clock"),
Alexander Hacke from Berlin (musician and member of the band Einsturzende Neubauten),
Kevin Fitzgerald (DJ Organic) (film producer, founder of Hip-hop Film Festival and an educational center focusing on hip-hop), and
Taina Ronkainen from Finland (creative director of „Oulu Music Video Festival”).
