SUPER 8 STORIES (2001) Emir Kusturica and the No Smoking Orchestra

Emir Kusturica produced and directed this view of a musical tour with his band, The No Smoking Orchestra, on the road from what was once Yugoslavia, to perform their brand of Yugo-Gypsy Punk Jazz Fusion in other parts of Europe. This is not just a documentary, however, but a personal and political statement as well, and moves between humor and sadness, while keeping us entertained by generous portions of the band on stage. Kusturica's themes are all presented here, but in a textured, multi-layered way: grainy super 8 family home movies are juxtaposed with kaleidoscopic, often color-saturated modern footage, and we wonder if we aren't being given a glimpse into Kusturica's brain. Super 8 Stories is undeniably his most experimental work, both in terms of storytelling and cinematography. This film is very hard to find,and a must for all Emir Kusturica fans! Mostly in Serbo-Croatian with optional English subtitles (available from your player's remote)
