It all started with this short.
Now, Joel Stones is looking to make his psychedelic romp through Brazilian music history into a feature-length film with the help of Kickstarter.
A documentary film that follows record store owner, producer and vinyl archaeologist Joel Stones as he explores uncharted territories of psychedelic Brazilian music. Following the success of his sold-out compilation Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas, Joel travels to Brazil in search of visionary and chaotic artists that have been overlooked by mainstream culture. Sonic rarities remind us of the great expanse of music history, with unique stories hovering behind every song. Armed with a wild afro, a box of 45s and an infectious personality, Joel pulls these secret histories through the cracks of Brazilian music. Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas – The Movie contains stories of people known and unknown, brought to life in shocking technicolor sound!
Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas – The Movie will take place in New York, Los Angeles and Brazil. The Brazilian Guitar Fuzz Bananas compilation will guide Joel throughout the southern hemisphere as he seeks out the musicians behind the record, piecing together a musical kaleidoscope. Some of the characters and stories will be re-enacted in different scenarios, combining fiction with surrealistic sketches and animation. Through his travels Stones will show us a unique vision of Brazilian culture, the multi-ethnic aspect of its people, and the ingenious ideas of these creative communities.
This amazing project sounds right up Remezcla’s alley, and with only three days left, we thought our readers might like to help these filmmakers reach their goal.
