This new film from acclaimed artist Jem Cohen features the Dutch band The Ex, an established but still furiously intense punk outfit. Here they are vividly captured in concert.The first half, shot in stunning 16mm black-and-white, is occasionally interrupted by degraded landscapes reminiscent of Chain, his 2004 installation and feature film. The second half, shot in DV’s saturated, bright colors, cuts away to longer interactions that concern wealth and power on the streets around the concert hall.
