Music documentaries at De Unie

In April and May De Unie will screen some of the best music documentaries, and some have a strong link to Motel Mozaique! Like the Oscar winning Searching For Sugar Man, about the search for the mysterious singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, on Friday April 19th. We already found Rodriguez in 2007 and booked him for the Motel Mozaique festival 😉

On Friday May 3rd it’s time for the Dutch premiere of In The Deep Shade, a documentary on Irish folk/rock band The Frames (with frontman Glen Hansard) who have been playing for over two decades. Unfortunately we never had the chance to get The Frames to Motel Mozaique, our schedules never matched.

Turning will be screened on Friday May 17th. This film tells the stories of the women who ‘performed’ in the special Antony and The Johnsons show. Antony played the Motel Mozaique festival in 2005, when he just released his beautiful breakthrough album I Am A Bird Now.
