Flavio’s best

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - ENTERTAINMENT -

n AC­CLAIMED mu­sic doc­u­men­taries rarely get a screen­ing here, you say? Fret not. Here comes Reel Deal nights, fea­tur­ing mu­sic doc­u­men­tary view­ing par­ties at BarSonic, Zouk KL. Reel Deal, cu­rated by the Twi­light Actiongirl crew, kicks off its first edi­tion to­mor­row night with Eve Wood’s in­sight­ful Made In Sh­effield.

The doc­u­men­tary tracks the rise of the in­flu­en­tial post-punk move­ment that emerged from Sh­effield in the late 1970s, de­fined by the elec­tronic pop of Cabaret Voltaire, The Hu­man League, ABC, Heaven 17 and oth­ers.

Rare ar­chive footage and ex­clu­sive in­ter­views with the fa­mous, al­most fa­mous, and not fa­mous at all, pull you di­rectly into the Sh­effield scene, with its fanzines, night­clubs, weird bands, record la­bels and all the am­bi­tion and cre­ativ­ity that made that time so spe­cial.

Loaded with en­dear­ing mo­ments and hu­mour, the film cap­tures the essence of the sel­dom por­trayed af­ter­math of punk and the spirit of the early 1980s Bri­tish new wave move­ment. Made In Sh­effield is screen­ing to­mor­row at BarSonic, Zouk KL, 113, Jalan Am­pang, Kuala Lumpur. Ad­mis­sion is free. Show­time: 9pm. n ARE you in the mood for golden oldies?
