13:30 Doors 14:00 Scream of My Blood: A Gogol Bordello Story (2023)

IN-EDIT is back! From 11 to 21 April the sixth edition of the music documentary festival takes place at the Melkweg. Again many great music films will be screened this year, like this documentary about the gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, with live Roman Oro!

A tumultuous life and passionate personality take centre stage in this film about Eugene Hütz, frontman of the ‘gypsy punk’ band Gogol Bordello. Delving into both political and musical aspects, we witness how the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and Soviet authoritarianism compelled him to emigrate to New York and rapidly establish a Balkan music group. The Russian invasion of Ukraine prompts a return to his homeland, where the artist realizes that, no matter how much we roam and embrace a stateless existence, our roots come back to haunt us.

Melkweg often hosts different types of programmes at the same time, such as concerts, club nights and films. Please note that there may occasionally be some noise pollution from other programmes during the screening.
