Description: "Gogol Bordello Non-Stop" is a lo-fi, high-energy documentary about New York City's most notoriously entertaining band, led by frontman Eugene Hütz. Filmmaker and fan Margarita Jimeno follows the band on a five-year journey from underground legend to international phenomenon, taking in the reckless, raucous sights and sounds of a band whom Hütz describes as "dedicated to creating an insane party atmosphere to deliver messages of social and political commentary. Featuring backstage interviews, onstage antics and copious concert footage, Jimeno waves together the story of the band's rise and rule. Gogol Bordello's early gigs involved playing traditional gypsy music at Russian weddings, but their music soon evolved into an explosive stage experience that earned them a following among New York's hipster elite. A passionate punk tribute to the most uninhibited band on the planet, "Gogol Bordello Non-Stop" goes beyond music, beyond the political, opening hearts and ears to a global artistic revolution.
