Tallinn Music Week presents a documentary film programme in Sõprus cinema focusing on music, politics and consequences of consumerism

The urban culture festival Tallinn Music Week (TMW), taking place from 27th March to 2nd April includes a film programme of five documentaries on cult, propaganda, pop culture as well as the horrific impact of consumerism on the environment.

“One More Time With Feeling” from director Andrew Dominik – a stark, fragile and raw documentary – will screen on the opening night of TMW. The film probes the deeply personal circumstances surrounding the making of Skeleton Tree, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ 16th studio album. From the production team behind the Oscar-winning “Searching for Sugar Man” comes “We Are X”, a transcendent rock & roll story about X Japan, the world’s biggest and most successful band you’ve never heard of…yet. “Liberation Day” is a musical documentary about the North Korea tour of Slovenian industrial rock band Laibach – a fascinating game with the instruments of totalitarian propaganda. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with filmmakers Ivan Novak and Mina Špiler.

Two films will focus on sustainable development – the core theme of this year’s TMW. “Demain”, co-directed by ecological rights advocate Cyril Dion and actress-filmmaker Melanie Laurent starts out from the study according to which most of the human population will cease to exist by the end of the century. “Death by Design” by Sue Williams takes a look at the dark side of technological enthusiasm.

The TMW film programme was compiled in cooperation with Raadio 2.

The TMW environmental awareness initiative is supported by the Ministry of Environment, NGO Mondo, Representation of European Commission in Estonia, Estonian Government Office and Embassy of Sweden.
