French electronic music is one of the most striking popular phenomena of the last two decades. Whilst exploring the origins of the French touch (inevitably linked to the techno movement of Detroit), its ramifications and the influence it had on the electronic music scene all over the world, French Waves revisits the raves, records and the main artists who marked the movement, from Laurent Garnier to Bob Sinclar or Carl Craig. The documentary integrates a larger project, consisting of a film, a series, a tour and an immersive site that illustrate decades of history. Thursday, May 3rd, at Cinema Ideal.
In conjunction with the screening of the film, IndieLisboa promotes, alongside Musicbox and Antena 3, a special party dedicated to this movement. On Friday, May 3rd, Julian Starke (the director), Isilda Sanches and Da Chick take over the controls of the Musicbox dance floor for a trip through French, Portuguese and other styles of electronic music.
