Sosho Film screenings
Wed Feb 28th 7pm onwards
Presented by Our History concept and curator Ernesto Leal
On Wednesday 28th February, Ernesto Leal will proudly present the screening of a collection of 10 short films (some previously unseen) at Sosho, documenting 20 years of electronic music from the Acid House period to the recent New Rave movement. Press Release as pdf and images are attached.
1989 was when acid house began. Music had reached a new level as this new movement was born. Illegal parties were held in secret warehouse locations, fields out in the country and even on London’s underground trains, cementing this new counter culture. Even the draconian Thatcherite criminal justice act didn’t stop them. In fact it merely fuelled the fire and increased the profile of an important scene in music, art and fashion.
Parties moved further across the seas – this new found freedom and cultural direction was catching, and more parties of this style were echoed across the beaches of Goa, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina as well as Tokyo and Shanghai Skyscrapers.
Our History Prints has begun collecting and exhibiting art work and film footage documenting this important era from where it all started in 1988/89 to the present day. From London, Blackburn and Manchester, and on to the white Island of Ibiza, Our History’s curator Ernesto Leal presents us with these viewing which act as a portal back to the parties and cultural experiences of this hazy time.
