25 Years of Crunchy Frog + Felix in Wonderland

Show trailer
Two films that celebrate musical creativity. Experience the German synth genius Felix Kubin in action with a festive short about Crunchy Frog’s 25th anniversary.

The German musician Felix Kubin is a wunderkind child of Kraftwerk, cassette tape punk, dadaism and the revolution that began with the analogue synthesiser. A musical anarchist with the imagination of an entire kindergarten class, who packs his microphone into a hot dog to record the sound of a dog who shreds it to pieces – and who is enough of a composer to know that it all needs a form. Kubin has found his soul sister in the film artist Marie Losier, who with playful creativity and analogue stop motion effects on 16mm celluloid immerses us completely in the machine room of Kubin's unique world. ‘Felix in Wonderland’ is shown with a brand new medium-length film, produced in connection with the 25th anniversary of the Danish record label Crunchy Frog.

25 Years of Crunchy Frog

Palle Demant / Denmark / 2020 / 30 min / WORLD PREMIERE

With Jesper 'Yebo' Reginal as the driving force and mastermind, the independent Danish music company Crunchy Frog has become known in the music industry worldwide. Dedicated superfans such as Rolling Stone Magazine's own David Fricke have brought the company and its many bands into the limelight, and now the frog is turning 25. Palle Demant ('Born To Lose') has followed the company on and off for years, and we are shown the best moments from Crunchy's 20th anniversary in 2014 and the 25th anniversary last year, which tell the story of the Danish DIY company. Starring photographer Søren Solkær, critic Jan Sneum, David Fricke himself and bucket-loads of crunchy music.
