We Don't Care About Music Anyway... February 08 2013 / 80 Mins/ HD
Synopsis
Genre: Documentary / Drama

From radical turntablism (Otomo Yoshihide) to laptop music innovation (Numb), via classical instrument hijacking (Sakamoto Hiromichi), Tokyo's avant-garde music scene is internationally known for its boldness.
While introducing some of the greatest musicians of this scene, "We Don't Care About Music Anyway..." offers a kaleidoscopic view of Tokyo, confronting music and noise, sound and image, reality and representation, documentary and fiction. "We don't care about music anyway"...
In other words, "we make it and that'sall". Beyond the music and beyond its performance, the future and mode of existence of a city, and society as a whole, are in motion.

Cast And Crew
Director: Cedric Dupire
Everything started with music, sounds, the others, how they cross the world, their world and how they feel it. Three documentaries about music came out: Musafir (India - 2005), L’Homme qu’il faut à la Place qu’il faut (Guinea Conakry – 2008) and We Don’t Care About Music Anyway… (Japan – 2009). Each environment, each character, each music interfered with the cinematographic form, moving from ethnographical to sensitive and poetic approaches. Step by step, these works opened a new path to formal, narrative and emotional experiments. Between 2010 and 2012, four short experimental films came out: No more free memory…, Dead End, Grey Seeds and O sal Da Lua, A Outra experiencia. The projects to come, Radio Taiso Activity or Amitabh is Amitabh, are crossing borders between documentary and experimental cinema, to mix up reality and fantasy.
