Duran Duran Unstaged
The Beefeater In-Edit festival showcases documentaries that directly or indirectly concern the musical and audiovisual worlds.
The programme this year includes: A Band Called Death, which looks at the Seventies black punk group of the same name; Mistaken for Strangers, an examination of sibling relationships with the younger brother of The National member Matt Berninger signing up to be a roadie on a tour by big bro's band; Duran Duran Unstaged, David Lynch's behind-the-scenes exploration of the Eighties mega-stars; and Muscle Shoals, a film about the eponymous studio in Alabama that examines the racial issues that arose there in the Sixties—contributions are made by artists such as Bono, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Opening the festival is 20 Feet from Stardom that tells the story of back-up singers and the key role they play in the success of major stars such as Bruce Springsteen and Michael Jackson despite being out of the spotlight.
