The occasion is “The Cleaner,” a travelling retrospective exhibition of work by Marina Abramović, whose final destination is Belgrade, the artist’s hometown.

United States, 2020, Colour and B&W, 79 min, English
Director: Alison Ellwood
Laurel Canyon was a rural oasis in Los Angeles that brought out the talent of young musicians. They formed bands together, broke up those bands, and formed new ones. They perfected their music at local clubs and pretty soon the world took notice. Frank Zappa, Jim Morrison, Carole King, Neil Young, Brian Wilson, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell John Phillips and Mama Cass are just some of the protagonists of this story.
LAUREL CANYON PART 2 / LAUREL CANYON
Director: Alison Ellwood
With harder drugs, bigger paychecks and the Manson murders, the once-neighbourly music scene in Laurel Canyon began to shift. In spite of everything, a new wave of troubadours came in and continued to captivate those beyond their rustic home.
LIAM GALLAGHER: AS IT WAS
United Kingdom, 2019, Colour, 85 min, English
Director: Gavin Fitzgerald, Charlie Lightening
LIAM GALLAGHER: AS IT WAS tells the honest and emotional story of how one of rock music’s most electrifying frontmen fell from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years as part of the band Oasis into a musical wilderness of ostracism, booze and bitter legal battles. In his own words, hear how Gallagher fought his way back, turning his fall from superstardom into the launch of a visionary solo career.
