Art Documentary: PressPausePlay

An unmissable documentary about art in the digital age for any passionate art and music lover: PressPausePlay. Fully available on Vimeo or their homepage.

As the production studio House of Radon describes the video:

“The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? A Film About Hope, Fear and Digital Culture.”

It shows the various chances and benefits of the digitalization and democratization of arts and creative industry, yet it doesn’t neglect negative aspects and risks (yes, these actually exist!). 

“Cultural democracy or mediocrity?”

It is a high-quality, 1,5h video containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators in music, movies, photography and advertising, including Ólafur Arnalds, Apparat, Moby, Bon Iver, Hot Chip, Keith Harris, Lykke Li, Robyn, authors from Pitchfork, or Napster-founder Sean Parker, underlined with beautfiful tunes and  powerful eye-candy.
