HIC + Doc’n Roll Film Fest: THE INERTIA VARIATIONS
May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Hull Independent Cinema and Doc’Roll Film Festival present: THE INERTIA VARIATIONS
Johanna St Michaels | 2017 | UK / Sweden | Unrated (18+ only) | 85 mins
At Hull Truck Theatre
HIC is delighted to be hosting Doc’Roll Film Festival, the UK’s celebration of music documentaries, for a second year. Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
Matt Johnson of post-punk band THE THE, known for his intensely personal and political songs, has remained silent as a singer-songwriter for the last 15 years. Conflicted by creative inertia, he has observed from the sidelines as corporate state propaganda has swamped the cultural airwaves.
To try and purge his feelings of disenchantment — and to attempt to relocate his mojo and muse — Johnson decides to challenge the narrow media consensus through his own radio broadcast. A long-term listener of shortwave radio, he launches Radio Cineola, his conceptual version of this romantic medium, via a live midday to midnight marathon. A promise to the director of the documentary, his ex-partner Johanna St Michaels, to write a new song for the broadcast stirs up old demons of inertia and bereavement.
Hull Truck is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
