2007 release. A compilation with exclusive interviews (Mark Stewart, Hermann Nitsch, Throbbing Gristle, Matthew Herbert etc.), short films, slide shows and music clips. Splendid packaging with a 48-page full-color booklet. "Enjoy each minute, while it casts its ray! Spring runs its course, love fades away," according to German poet Emanuel Geibel. Now, 200 years later, the era of digital archives allows Monitorpop Entertainment to bring back and savor the odd minute or two. The Berlin-based DVD label specializes in unconventional artists and themes beyond the mainstream, for example, a retrospective of Berlin's early '80s underground scene, Berlin Super 80 or cult films by NY director Amos Kollek. This compilation assembles a range of talents who have pursued their very own, often radical and inevitably, idiosyncratic paths. Among them: Viennese artist Hermann Nitsch, photographer Miron Zownir, musician Matthew Herbert, Mark Stewart, founder of the legendary punk-funk band The Pop Group and performance artist Leigh Bowery. All interviews are exclusive to this compilation and the videos and slide shows feature rare, unearthed treasures not to be seen on daily television -- stimulating distractions for all lovers of eclectic entertainment. Stay curious! NTSC, All-region format; 4:3/16:9; Stereo; Running time: 180 minutes.
