Control | Anton Corbijn
2007 | UK / USA | 119 mins | B&W | in English with English subs

Control adalah biopik hitam putih mengenai Ian Curtis (1956–1980), vokalis utama band post-punk Joy Division. Dibuat berdasarkan  buku Touching from a Distance, oleh co-producer sekaligus istri Curtis, Deborah, film ini bercerita mengenai perjalanan hidup musisi muda Curtis sebagai katalis dalam scene punk rock di Inggris pada tahun 1970-an, dan band Joy Division pimpinannya selama tahun 1977-1980. Film ini juga bercerita mengenai pernikahan, perselingkuhan ekstramaritalnya, dan gejala epilepsinya yang kian memburuk — diduga mendorong bunuh dirinya di malam sebelum pertama Joy Division di Amerika. Judul film ini adalah referensi pada lagu Joy Division, “She’s Lost Control”— dipercaya sebagai referensi pada seorang klien penderita epilepsi yang Curtis kenal saat bekerja di Pusat Tenaga Kerja (Job Centre) di Macclesfield.

La Vie en Rose | Olivier Dahan
2007 | France | 140m | Colour | In  French with English subs

Portret impresionistik mengenai seorang penyanyi dan ikon Prancis, Edith Piaf. Dari jalan gelap distrik Belleville di Paris sampai ke hall konser ternama di New York, hidup Piaf adalah ketegangan untuk menyanyi dan bertahan, untuk hidup dan mencintai. Dibesarkan di rumah bordir neneknya, Piaf “ditemukan” di tahun 1935 oleh pemilik klab malam Louis Leplee (Gerard Depardieu), yang berhasil meyakinkannya untuk menyanyi.


After a short retrospective on early horror, this month we bring you a selection of music on screen, concentrating on films about any music styles and about musicians: 1) Double bill: Control — a beautiful biopic on Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division — and Downtown 81, a rare real-life snapshot of post-punk era Manhattan. 2) Amandla!, a documentary on the role of music in the South African struggle against apartheid. 3) Latcho Drom, tells of the migration of the Gypsies across Europe and Asia, presents its story through song and dance. 4) La Vie en Rose, a film about the life of the legendary French chanteuse Édith Piaf, and is named after her signature song.

Screenings are held every Saturday, 17.00 at C2O library, Jl. Dr. Cipto 20 Surabaya 60264 (across US General Consulate — view map), free and open for public. This screening programme is run independently with the purpose of introducing and sharing references and informations, not necessarily limited films per se.

Control is a 2007 black-and-white biopic film about Ian Curtis (1956–1980), lead singer of post-punk band Joy Division. Based on the book Touching from a Distance, by Curtis’s widow, Deborah, who is also a co-producer of the film, the film details the life of the troubled young musician, who forged a new kind of music out of the punk rock scene of the United Kingdom in the 1970s, and the band Joy Division, which he headed from 1977 to 1980. It also deals with his rocky marriage and extramarital affairs, as well as his increasingly frequent seizures, which were thought to contribute to the circumstances leading to his suicide on the eve of Joy Division’s first U.S. tour. The title is a reference to the Joy Division song, “She’s Lost Control”—believed to be a reference to an epileptic client befriended by Curtis while employed at a Job Centre in Macclesfield, who later died during a seizure.

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/EzGWSl7iO7Y" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]

Directed by Edo Bertoglio, written by Glenn O’Brien and produced by Maripol, is a rare real-life snapshot of ultra-hip subculture of post-punk era Manhattan. Starring renowned artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and featuring such early Village artists as James Chance, Amos Poe, Walter Steding, and Tav Falco, the film is a bizarre elliptical urban fairytale. The soundtrack features many artists including Tuxedomoon, Melle Mel, Vincent Gallo, John Lurie, the Plastics, and Basquiat’s own band, Gray. The dialogue audio for the film was lost, so actor Saul Williams dubbed the late Basquiat’s voice.

A swirling, impressionistic portrait of an artist who regretted nothing, writer-director Olivier Dahan’s La Vie en Rose stars Marion Cotillard in a blazing performance as the legendary French icon Edith Piaf. From the mean streets of the Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York’s most famous concert halls, Piaf’s life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in her grandmother’s brothel, Piaf was discovered in 1935 by nightclub owner Louis Leplee (Gerard Depardieu), who persuaded her to sing despite her extreme nervousness. Piaf became one of France’s immortal icons, her voice one of the indelible signatures of the 20th Century.
