In there you’ll find a tell-all portrait of a legendary post-punk band The Birthday Party as they navigate their way from Australia to London, trying to start the career in UK, in Mutiny in Heaven: Nick Cave's The Birthday Party.

The story of Scottish post-rock band Mogwai as they work on their 10th studio album "As the Love Continues" during the lockdown is told brilliantly in Mogwai: If the Stars Had a Sound.

Ryuichi Sakamoto’s last performance is captured sublimely in Ryuichi Sakamoto | Opus, a concert film featuring just him and his piano playing for the last time before passing away.

In Efterklang: The Makedonium Band we meet the famous Danish indie pop band Efterklang as they prepare with the members of local Macedonian musicians in order to create a performance in front of the architecturally stunning Makedonium independence monument. After the screening of the film, Efterklang will perform at Lumbardhi Open Air cinema stage.

Rounding up the selection are two films about the correlation between music and struggle for freedom, namely HAIYU - Rebel Singer Mariem Hassan and the Struggle for a Free Western Sahara and Dancing Palestine.
