Art’s Not Dead: A Cape Town Music documentary

Art’s Not Dead, a documentary about the Cape Town music scene, will premier at the Labia on Orange cinema on Monday 21 February at 8:00pm.

Art’s Not Dead is a unique documentary-style music film that captures the “retirement” of a young Cape Town musician from his bands and the music scene.

In October 2010, drummer Artur Pereira announces that he is quitting music altogether, leaving his four bands in the process.  As the bands prepare for a final farewell show, friends and band colleagues reflect on how he has impacted their lives and their music.

The film offers a genuine insight into the relationships not only between band members, but between bands and their intertwined histories, and how one musician’s actions reflect the greater sentiment of much of Cape Town’s talented underground music community.

The film, directed by Anton Marshall, features live performances by Cape Town bands Coal, Andy Lund and the Mission Men, V.O.L., Three More White Guys and more…

This event is presented by the Labia and While You Were Sleeping, a Cape Town-based non-profit film collective committed to bringing progressive, non-mainstream documentaries with important social, political, environmental and cultural messages to South African audiences.
