Amenra, originated in 1999 from the West-Flemish hardcore scene and grew over the years into a globally respected collective that continuously explores the boundaries of what it means to be a music group. Through idiosyncratic live performances, highly elaborate artwork and fascinating collaborations with artists from all kinds of disciplines, a completely unique, personal universe emerged around the band that extends far beyond the musical aspect alone.
Photo and videographer Bobby Cochran (° 1972 California, USA) started following Amenra several years ago on various tours through the United States, Europe and Japan. This resulted in a penetrating portrait in which the band members and their closest collaborators look back on the past twenty years under the guidance of captivating images and moving music. Before this documentary film can be viewed elsewhere, it will be screened exclusively in Sphinx Cinema.
