The first event, earlier this month, was live music plus art and audio on display from REYNOLS.

The two feature films being screened are as follows. Film 1: Acid Mothers Reynols: Live and Beyond Dir. Alejandro Maly , Argentina, 2020, 84 min Featuring: Makoto Kawabata,Miguel Tomasín, Tabata Mitsuru, Roberto Conlazo, Anla Courtis, Higashi Hiroshi, etc. A documentary about the unique meeting of 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.

Film 2: ‘Sinti Botuva Tapes’ (Reynols Documentary) Multiple Directors. Archival Footage 1993-2018. 80 min Featuring: Miguel Tomasín, Roberto Conlazo, Anla Courtis, Pauline Oliveros, Lee Ranaldo, Alan Licht etc. The Argentine cult band Reynols started in Buenos Aires in 1993 and integrates Down Syndrome drummer Miguel Tomasín with guitarists Roberto Conlazo and Alan Courtis. This film compiles a diversity of live concerts and various activities over a period of more than 25 years and screened concurrently with the release of the Reynols box set “Minecxio Emanations 1993-2018”. “I know Reynols indeed: they are among the most experimental and wild people I’ve heard” Thurston Moore (Rolling Stone magazine #201.
