MUSICIAN WOUNDED KNEE AT DCR 97.4fm Studio

 Wounded Knee: Drifters

Pioneering Scots filmmaker John Grierson was the founding father of the British documentary movement and Drifters is a landmark in his career. Grierson and his camera follow the crew of a trawler fishing for herring in the North Sea, creating a poetic portrait of their everyday lives, the hypnotic rhythms of the sea and the tensions in a traditional trade adapting to the modern world.

This special screening will be accompanied by a live score composed by Wounded Knee. Drawing on traditional folk song, Wounded Knee has developed a distinctive, vocal oriented sound built from simple repeating live loops. He creates a strange and timeless Janus music that looks both to the chants and worksong of the old and the mechanised minimalism of the new.
