In 2016, one of New York's most beloved and influential record shops closed down. Other Music was more than just a store selling CDs, records and cassettes – it was a place where bands were formed, record companies born and careers launched. OTHER MUSIC examines the legacy of the store as well as the social and cultural importance of brick and mortar shops in general. This is a bittersweet nostalgia trip back to the recent past, featuring artists such as Animal Collective, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend and Regina Spektor.
Monday 12 October, there will be a screening at Apollon with an introduction by Henrik Svanevik and Lene Bergmann. OTHER MUSIC is screened in collaboration with Byarkitekten i Bergen.
This film can be streamed on BIFF+ 13–31 October 2020. Limited amount of rentals on BIFF+.
