EXTRALISCIO. DANCE-HALL PUNK. DANCING UNTIL DAWN
An intense cinematographic portrait of the legendary dancehall punk band Extraliscio.
How the folklore of Romagna ballroom dancing encounters new sounds, bending genres from rock and pop to electronic music.
Directed by the filmmaker, publisher, and ‘memory hunter’, Elisabetta Sgarbi, it adds an exclamation point to an antropological culture of experiencing social relations with their inevitable soundtrack included.
Writer Ermanno Cavazzoni is the narrator and poet on stage to tell a tradition of sounds, joy, dance, madness that becomes «We will dance until dawn».
