Films from the Outside

Click to enlarge The thematic programme of the sixth Rokumentti Rock Film Festival focuses on the experience of being an outsider. The selection of films tells the stories of people who have, for some reason or another, been pushed or voluntarily settled themselves outside the community of so-called normal people. The history of rock music is full of artists who have not been able to fit the standards of normality defined by the society surrounding them, and these outcasts are often avantgardists, literally vanguarding new movements, creating new forms of art and mixing up the old ones. In the process, however, they often mess up their own everyday life, and artists rebelling against norms end up being elevated to mythical heroes or labelled as lunatics and rejected. It is often a thin line between a mad genius and an ordinary nutcase.

Why do artists have the permission to be such a**holes? What kind of role models do those suicidal, delirious drug abusers actually set? Or is our society just blind to creativity? Is the grass greener outside the box? Here are some examples of questions we will look at with the help of the festival films and in the seminars.

In addition to the thematic programme, Rokumentti Rock Film Festival features dozens of great music films as well as gigs by artists who are mostly in their right minds. The full programme will be published in the end of October. Welcome to Rokumentti Rock Film Festival in November Ô€“ let's stay outside together!
