‘Take Away Shows’ coming to town

Following a journey to Hanoi, the La Blogotheque bandwagon will present 17 short films belonging to the ‘Take Away Shows’ series to the public in HCMC tonight, VietnamPlus reports.

In 2006, Chryde, the project’s founder, and French filmmaker Vincent Moon began jointly producing a series of videos called ‘Take Away Shows’ that have been launched in a number of countries.

With simple filming equipment, the duo traveled around Paris and recorded the images of any bands or artists they came across.

What makes ‘Take Away Shows’ unique is the sudden but natural presence of music combined with the films made in a guerrilla filmmaking style. This aspect remains unchanged even though the scheme has gone worldwide.

There are at least 300 performances recorded with the participation of Arcade Fire (Canada), Fleet Foxes (the U.S.) and Sigur Ros (Ireland) among others.

Screening, which will begin at 8 p.m. at Cafe Thu Bay, 128 Hai Ba Trung Street in District 1, is co-organized by The Onion Cellar and Hanoi Doclab.
