Since 1999, Sound Unseen has offered a cool selection of events that mix movies with music through screenings, concerts, parties, panel talks, and happy hours. This year, the festival offers a wide variety of documentary films. Subjects include megastars, underappreciated musicians, a record store and label, and the great photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Narrative films that prominently feature music as part of the storyline will also be screened. There’s Saints Rest, about two estranged sisters who bond over music after their mother’s death; Lords of Chaos, a death-metal horror film by famed music video director Jonas Åkerlund; and Taking Off, a classic 1972 film by Milos Forman about grieving parents who take a nosedive into youth counterculture. Meanwhile, there are plenty of panel discussions that will give you the chance to hear from some of the filmmakers presenting at the festival, and social events include bowling sessions at Bryant-Lake Bowl.
