Director: Mark Archer

Don’t Go Gentle captures the 10 year journey of IDLES struggle, grief and moving determination. Exploring their vulnerabilities through their experience, lyrics and sound, we learn the reasons why these five individuals have connected with legions of people across the world. We see just how that relationship unfolds in the most courageous and positive of human ways. We journey with lead singer Joe Talbot and the band as they tear across stages, knocking down stereotypes, empowering fans to talk about mental health and the realities we may not feel comfortable to speak about.

FADE AWAY PHOTO EXHIBITION 

GSFF proudly presents Fade Away Photo Exhibition!  

For the first time ever, a Photo Exhibition curated and created especially for GSFF will take place during GSFF Technopolis Edition.

¨Fade Away Photo Exhibition” presents the works of three artists whose work shares the same basic elements as GSFF: Music, Film and People.

Συμμετέχουν:

  • Chris Kissadjekian, an iconic concert photographer whose work encompasses the last 30+ years of Greece's concert history.  

  • Jo Brent is a valuable member of the  GSFF family. A sensitive and anthropocentric artist, Jo will present works from her GSFF portfolio, portraits of musicians and artists, as well as works inspired by Greece. 

  • Lindsay Melbourne, co-producer of  Don’t Go Gentle: A Film About IDLES, will participate with  a collection of photos from early IDLES gigs and behind the scenes material from filming with the band. 

 

The exhibition will be open throughout GSFF, with free admission.
