A documentary about the unique meeting two internationally recognized bands in the field of experimental music, drone, psychedelic, avant-garde: Argentine cult provocateurs Reynols and Japanese wizards Acid Mothers Temple.
In November 2017, Acid Mothers Temple, began their first tour of Latin America. While in Buenos Aires, they invited Reynols to join them onstage. This documentary is a profile of their extraordinary live show and the combined studio recordings that followed.
The film captures the highlights of the sessions in which the bands play live, in a visual language that corresponds to the mind-expanding moments of the music. We are also exposed to the musicians during the creation process in the studio, and we can realize how their language and cultural barriers are overcome.
The director’s trippy colorful visual language serves to complement the band’s music. Between the tracks, band members reflect on their work and on spirituality as an essential basis for the development of their music.
