Filmmaker Jonathan Caouette's documentary on growing up with his schizophrenic mother -- a mixture of snapshots, Super-8 film, answering machine messages, video diaries, early short films, and more - culled from nineteen years of his life.
In Fabric is a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences..
Contributor turned cinematographer Vincent Moon became involved with the film by sending an amateur recording of his first ATP weekend into Warp. Warp saw his footage and contacted him immediately, inviting him to come back to future festivals. Since then, Vincent has only missed two ATP events and has become highly acclaimed for his Take Away Shows, shooting bands performing tracks in unusual locations. See more »
Great piece of documentary celebrating 10 years of unconventional ATP festival.
For a film almost entirely composed of amateur footage, sent in by fans, this is certainly one of the best looking, best sounding rock documentaries I've seen for a very long time.
This girl Krissie Nicolson summed it up pretty well: "We get performances from the festival goers and artists on film, camcorder, Super 8 and mobile phones. Some of it is hilarious, some of it's inspiring - and all of it is entertaining in some way. I think this film instructional. It should be shown at schools as part of the national curriculum to excite free and independent thinking. After all, this country needs the agitators more now than ever."
