We have selected four short films from the great project Rockumentary Grunn, from which you can learn more at our Crossovers during our Industry Meetings.

 

This is a project from the Film Collectief Groningen, initiative from Roeland Dijksterhuis, Carla Wolbers and Mara Mouwen, that started in 2016 with the intention to collect the music legacy of the province in collaboration with the Gronings Audiovisueel Archief (GAVA), Poparchief Groningen and the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG).

At the end of the Eighties, the Groningen village of Stadskanaal is a hotbed for hip-hop. A large group of youngster – almost all of them children from Philips factory workers – breakdance, spray graffiti, and make beats. De Kwinne – a youth club – is the creative center where the youngster come together to socialize, but especially to share music.

At the end of the fifties, when most Dutch boys still still ‘just’ play the accordion, one of the very first rock ‘n roll bands is founded up in Groningen by a group of Indonesian boys and a girl. Starting in the legendary youth center ‘t Krotje Little Ritz and his Rocking Butterflies quickly become incredibly popular and even kick it into a performance on national television.

Niels Smit Duyzentkunst from Oostum is the spiritual father of the ZomerJazzFietsTour. This bike tour near the city of Groningen (following the banks of the Reitdiep) has been held since 1987 on the last Saturday of August. During the Tour, Jazz musicians play in the barns and churches of Groningen stiff farmers that do not seem to be into music that much. Appearences are deceptive, though.

Open the Gate

Directors Roeland Dijksterhuis

17 min. / 2017

 

In 1986, the heavy metal band Vortex is the first band from Groningen to shoot a music video of their single ‘Open the Gate’. Vortex is already such a strange duck in Groningen, with their theatrical appearance, make-up and fake blood. Yet the idiosyncratic boys of Vortex do not care about anything at all. Thirty years later, Jurjen and Martjo look back at the origin of the song that has become their favorite. To this day ‘Open the Gate’ has to be played at every concert. A Rockumentary about how a song becomes a classic, about how just being crazy is not enough, and about always doing what you like.

Always a storyteller in anything he does, actor, performer and writer Danny Butler thrives on visuals, ideas and unusual perspectives. A unique subject looks better against a clichéd background and vice versa.

 

Happily blurring the line between acting and presenting, Danny also likes to on voice acting jobs, sometimes taking on different roles in one production. He enjoys taking on new challenges. Anything to keep the voice flexible.
As a presenter, Danny brings together thorough preparation and improvisation. When everything falls apart, you make that the art. There are worlds to be explored.
