15 August 2012
Dutch documentary PARADISO, AN AMSTERDAM STAGE AFFAIR, directed by Jeroen Berkvens, has won a prize at the Jecheon International Music & Film Festival of South Korea.The festival took place 9 - 15 August 2012. The film is produced by Zeppers Film & TV and co-produced by NTR.
In Paradiso, Jeroen Berkvens highlights, as in an exhilarating rollercoaster ride, all aspects of the Amsterdam pop temple. Still, the experience of the musicians is central, so that the film is also about what it’s like to perform in front of an audience. The staircase from dressing room to the Paradiso stage is not high, but with every step the emotions rise, balancing between fear and euphoria. Then the release follows: the concert. With Paul Weller, Henry Rollins, Jello Biafra, Johnny Rotten, Tom Barman, Martha Wainwright, Faithless, Patrick Watson, Daniel Johnston, Tim Knol, The Sonics, Public Enemy and many others.
