DPM was invited to an exclusive pre screening of the "Punkt – the documentary” produced by Kristian Mosvold and directed by Adrien le Gall.

The 62 minutes documentary give you a a good view into the working process of Erik Honoré and Jan Bang when it comes to the Punkt festival.

This excellent film switches elegantly between concert performances, the live remixes, interviews with Jan and Erik - with the added point of views on the Punkt concept from several artists like Eivind Aarseth, Nils Petter Molvær, Sidsel Endresen, Audun Kleive and Laurie Anderson. We also learn how Punkt has opened up new collaboration avenues for several of the artists.
On this note, the movie mentions links between various artists and the festival it self. We wish that this would have been explored more in the movie.

* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.

I was at Punkt and sat next to Ruben during the pre screening of the Punkt doc. Ruben is too modest to mention in his review he also took all the included photos. It was a dark theatre so I give 3 Huzzahs to Ruben for getting all the great photos. I was fortunate to speak with director Adrien Le Gall about the film during it's short run at Punkt. Due to prior commitments Punkt documentary will travel the film festival circuit before being commercially released and subsequently it will be released on DVD and Blu Ray. So unless you are fortunate enough to live in a city with an upcoming festival you will have to wait approximately six months before commercial release. The pre screen we saw was a work print and Adrien said he has a little fine tuning to do before commercial release. Ruben forgot to mention the pre screening also included two full Punkt concerts which Adrien may or may not include in the DVD extras if he can get the proper artist permissions.
