Sound Unseen says
Sound Unseen presents the Minnesota premiere of director George Hencken’s documentary, Soul Boys of the Western World, on 1980’s British pop band, Spandau Ballet famous for their 1983 hit single, “True.” We would like to thank to our sponsors, 89.3 the Current and Trylon microcinema for their contributions toward Sound Unseen.

Spandau Ballet are one of Britain’s great iconic bands having sold over 25 million records, scored numerous multi-platinum albums and amassed 23 hit singles across the globe (including their biggest hit, 1983’s “True”) since their humble beginnings as a group of friends with dreams of stardom in the late 1970s. It wasn’t long before they became fully fledged members of the iconic Blitz Club scene and established themselves as one of the super-groups of the 80s. After two decades apart, the band reformed in 2009, embarking on a sold-out tour and this marks the first time Spandau Ballet’s story has been documented on film.

“Soul Boys of the Western World” is a journey through the 1980s and beyond; the story of a band, an era and how one small gathering of outsiders in London shaped the entire world’s view of music and fashion. The film is not only a fascinating, often hard-hitting social and cultural document of the time, but a brutally honest story of how friendships can be won, lost and ultimately regained.

Dir. George Hencken, UK, 2014, 102 min., DCP
