The music documentary was born in the mid-sixties as a platform for telling human and artistic stories with music and film as the common thread. A journey that has been gaining momentum thanks, in part, to the In-Edit Festival. This series of talks delves into the curiosities of documentaries and brings us closer to their protagonists.
Led by Uri Altell (founder and director of In-Edit) and Toni Castarnado (editor of the book In-Edit. Made in Barcelona: A history of the music documentary).
