MIF presents the UK premiere of Gabin Rivoire’s documentary Laurent Garnier: Off the Record, (11 July) a film about the life and career of the famous French DJ, producer and techno pioneer, and the history of the political and judicial response to rave culture. The film mixes tour footage and interviews interspersed with archival footage that provides a flashback to the late ’80s when the techno scene was emerging in Detroit and England, in clubs like Manchester’s Haçienda, where Laurent Garnier started his DJing journey. The premiere will be followed by a Q&A with Garnier and writer, broadcaster and fellow Haçienda DJ Dave Haslam.
