Boiler Room, Amsterdam-based entertainment house Pi Studios and Melkweg present a very special screening of the film 'Migrant Sound' with a Q&A and afterparty.
The series Migrant Sound will be shown one night only in a special edit to create a unique cinema experience for you! Migrant Sound is a new documentary series from Boiler Room which seeks to explore migration in the UK and look at the impact it has had on music and culture. ‘Migrant Sound’ traces the impact the Windrush generation (Caribbean migrants from the 1950s coming to Britain) had on British music culture over the past 60 years.
Taking a larger look at the positive cultural impact immigration can have, the film shows how music has the power to express and transform identities. From ska to neo-soul. Acid house to first wave punk. UK drill to bashment, immigration helped shape all of these sounds.
Featuring A Guy Called Gerald, Skinny Girl Diet, Narx, Oscar #worldpeaceand many more
The panel will feature Director Jeremy Cole, Head of Pi Studios Ravi Amaratunga Hitchcock and CCO of Boiler Room Stephen Mai, discussing their thoughts about the project and general views on immigration and music. Chaired by Steven Strik (Melkweg)
Afterwards we will spin some tunes and have some drinks in the bar
We already got 3 amazing music documentaries lined up for you during ADE!
Melkweg present the Dutch premiere of MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A, a special edit of ‘Migrant Sound’ and we also present the badass documentary about PRSPCT and how the DIY mentality from punk helped Thrasher (Gareth de Wijk) to create a successful and independent label.
