RE:GENERATION MUSIC PROJECT, a documentary film directed by Amir Bar Lev — who made the award-winning documentaries My Kid Could Paint That and The Tillman Story — is set for its encore screenings in select venues on Thursday, February 23. Click HERE to find out where the film will be showing nearest to you.
Produced in association with The Grammys, the film looks at the history, songwriting and studio process of different musical genres through the eyes of five of the most influential electronic producers/DJs in music today, who write and record a brand new track with a grouping of influential collaborators in their respective genres. The tag line for the film is â€œ5 DJâ€™s Turn the Table of the History of Music.â€ The stories of these five DJs are documented in RE:GENERATION.
It follows each as they craft an unlikely tune with unlikely collaborators, proving that music truly is a universal language and will be showing in a theatre near you for a very brief period of time.
