The annual music documentary festival kicks off in Santiago next week
- Text by Nico Castro
In-Edit is a documentary festival that was created in Barcelona in 2003, to gather the best music screenings form around the world, including local and international competitions. Due to its success, the next year the festival expanded to South America, starting in Santiago, Chile.
The eighth version kicks off next Wednesday December 7, with a special presentation of "Piedra Roja", a documentary that explores the mythical festival held in Santiago in 1970, "The Chilean Woodstock". Over 10 days, this is a brilliant local competition telling the stories behind local names like Los Jaivas, Pánico and Los Bunkers, as well as the official Tortoise documentary capturing the cult instrumental band, that was also made in Chile.
Music fans will be delighted that Scorsese's documentary about George Harrison along with films about Elliott Smith, Queen, The Libertines, Pina Bausch and the Sacred Triangle (Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, David Bowie) will be showcased.
