Default Fan documentary-The Poster Came From The Walls

The Poster Came From The Walls is the fan documentary that Brown Owl Films did for the Best Of comp a couple years ago but which was rejected by Mute/DM

It is being aired as part of the BFI London Film Festival on Tue Oct 21 in London but I am unaware of any other screenings worldwide so if you've heard of any, please post them..

----------------------------------

film info:

In Russia, May 9 is Victory Day, a national holiday. Itís also the birthday of Dave Gahan, lead singer with Depeche Mode, and a group of Muscovite fans have declared it Dave Day, gathering together to celebrate the group with homemade banners, mass sing-alongs and club nights. In Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union, the bandís music has been treasured since it was only available on illegal bootlegged cassettes in the 1980s, and it formed the soundtrack of the march toward freedom those countries embarked upon following the fall of the Berlin Wall. This situation is mirrored in Tehran, where fans take huge risks in listening to their music in a country that has banned all Western music since the Cultural Revolution. In Mexico, fans have seized upon religious inferences in the band's work, particularly after an image of the Guadalupe Virgin was used in a tour programme. In the UK, the church of St Edward King and Martyr in Cambridge holds services for goths where they play Depeche Mode records. Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller and collaborator Nicholas Abrahams tell these and other stories of faith and devotion from around the world in this fascinating and inspired documentary about fandom, which is at turns bizarre, funny, sad and often touching. The Festival is delighted to be adding the world premiere of the film to our programme.
Michael Hayden

Worst. Documentary. Ever.

Sorry to the crew, but I cringe every time I see it. It paints DM fans as truly scary people. If people get to see this in a public forum, you will definitely take your DM stickers off of your car, and stop wearing DM t shirts. You won't want people thinking you are like the people in the doc.

(personal opinion)

But not us, right? We're not scary. It's those other "weird" fans. I am totally normal. Really.

Yikes, I sent in some of my fan stuff like 2 years ago for this. If it's that bad, I hope none of it is in it or I'm taking a certain production company to court.
