Doc/Nights: Never Stop - A Music That Resists + Q&A


House Of Vans

Thu 27th Jun

Our monthly series Doc/Nights makes its return to our Cinema screen on Thursday 27th of June. This month we're collaborating with Doc'n Roll and BFI to bring you Never Stop - A Music That Resists, followed by a Q&A with Director Jacqueline Caux. 


This striking and beautifully filmed documentary tells the compelling and unexpected story of Detroit techno and the local labels that enabled its stubbornly independent underground culture to resonate worldwide. It is the tale of a creative force, inspired by new attitudes towards technology and electronic communication, that built a future-facing DIY utopia in a machine-age city undergoing huge change as its place at the heart of American manufacturing slipped away.

As Detroit struggles toward rebirth, Never Stop looks back over the genre’s thirty-year history via interviews and insights from the movement’s legendary figures, including Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Carl Craig and Jeff Mills. They range over the radio DJs who inspired them, the record shops who supported them and the major labels who rejected and tried to thwart them; the culture of independence, enterprise and empowerment that fed into their work; and the sequencers, sounds and scenes that created a musical phenomenon.

The screening will be hosted in our 100-seat cinema space; the event is free with booking required. A very limited number of walk-in tickets will be available on the day, on a first come, first served basis.

This event is supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.
