    Villalobos documentary premieres

    Micro-house luminary Ricardo Villalobos is the main focus of a new documentary premiering at the 66th Venice film festival. Filmed and directed by the German-born Romuald Karmakar between 2006 and 2008, Villalobos is a stimulating look into the cloudy club world inhabited by the Chilean super producer.

    Villalobos, who constantly appears on heavyweight labels such as Cocoon, Cadenza and Perlon, is a leading figure in the world’s electronic scene and was voted the number one DJ by Resident Advisor last year. This documentary promises to shed some much-needed light on the mysterious figure that still refuses to play in the United States.

    According to the official description, this film was “shot with official permission at the famous Berghain club in Berlin, at the closing parties of Cocoon at Amnesia, Monza at Privilege and Sonar 2006. The film focuses in long interviews with Villalobos on how he thinks, how he hears and how he produces his music.”

    The award winning Karmakar has a long history of documenting the contemporary techno music scene. In the film 196 BPM, he set out to document the infamous 2002 Berlin Love Parade. In 2005 Karamakar released Between the Devil and the Wide Blue Sea, a journey into the pulsing world of the European electronic music scene. Karmakar’s Villalobos will be the last in a trilogy about electronic music and club culture of the noughties.

    Villalobos will premiere at the 66th Venice International Film Festival on September 8th, 2009.
