From March 13 to 16, the Gaîté Lyrique will play host to a season of films that explore the ties between music, urban culture and cinema, the underground and the mainstream. While the remit's fairly wide – subjects range from deceased French techno legend DJ Sextoy to Baltimore dirt bike gangs – the festival will be framed by a series of talks and Q&A sessions with directors, musicians and other guests. Events to look out for: a screening of 'You're Gonna Miss Me' (an intimate portrait of the tragic life of psychedelic rocker Roky Erikson), and an enticing opening ceremony, as part of which the band Zombie Zombie will perform their soundtrack to Narimane Mari's film 'Bloody Beans' live as the film plays. Fans of Claire Denis, take note: the closing ceremony will feature a screening of the director's rarely seen early doc 'Man No Run', about Cameroonian rockers Têtes Brûlées.
