At the matinée

By Giangiacomo De Stefano

At the Matinee provides an account, through Walter Schreifels and his music, of a world that existed in New York's Lower East Side during the 80s and has since disappeared.

 

Through the memories of Walter Schreifels and his music, AT THE MATINEE tells the unique story of New York's Lower East Side in the late 1980s — a place and time that became synonymous with hardcore music, counter culture and defiant youth. Thirty years later, Schreifels continues to write and perform music that takes inspiration from his original hardcore roots in the Lower East Side. As such, he will be our on-screen guide to the neighborhood and the musicians who shaped it, helping us journey back in time to the pavements outside of CBGBs where every Sunday afternoon hardcore kids, skinheads, and punks lined the street waiting for one of the now infamous matinee concerts of the late 1980s. Through Schreifels’ unique first person lens, we will meet a motley cast of characters who were also there and influential in the scene, painting an unmatched portrait of that time and how it still influences their creative lives to this day. AT THE MATINEE will also take us to Germany (Berlin) and Italy (Bologna), places that are important to Schreifels’ life as a musician, to examine how hardcore and its legacy has had a footprint in other parts of the world to this day.

Chains

By Francesca Balbo

In that part of Sardinia which winds its way between the Trexenta, Campidano and Gennargentu areas runs a timeless train, whose passage is waved on by small yellow dots brandishing a green and red signal paddle, the level-crossing keepers. A job that has been passed down from mother to daughter to niece for generations.

They are there to halt the traffic to let the train pass, just a few hundred kilometres of secondary track which crosses secondary roads travelled by cars, tractors, sheep and three wheeled Ape's.

Raunch Girl

By Giangiacomo De Stefano

Clara, 21 years old, lives in Milan with her sister and, like other normal girls, simply goes to the local College.
She was not in her major age, while she decided to pose for some porn web-sites; Clara simply sent some hot pictures, and the game was done: quickly she saw herself naked in some naughty website.

Why? Because this "was the fastest way to appear." But this was just the first step.
