Beyond MTV

Beyond MTV

Beyond MTV is a documentary about the art of the music video made for the Dutch broadcaster VPRO. The program portrays the artistic development of the music video director. What began two decades ago as little more than a ┬ámarketing tool showing a band’s stage act has become a director’s medium of expression and experimentation.┬áMany of those young directors have now moved on to the big screen resulting in award-winning features such as ‘Lost in┬áTranslation’ and ‘Being John Malkovich’. Beyond MTV explores the new visual narratives and techniques used in today’s music videos which are often three minute masterpieces. Interviews with the likes of Spike Jonze, Mike Mills, Geoffroy de Crecy and H5 are your backstage pass to the state of today’s music video.
