Greetings!

 

While producing the documentary "Romantic Warriors II - About RIO", filming live concerts and collecting interviews in the RIO and Avant Progressive scene, the Zeitgeist Media team acquired a wealth of extremely valuable footage that far exceeded what we could fit inside the film. So, we decided to release a companion DVD with special features that includes 60 minutes of live concert footage of eight RIO/Avant Progressive bands that are featured in the film, and 40 minutes of unseen interviews with members of the original RIO bands as well as contemporary musicians currently shaping the sounds of modern avant-progressive music.

ROMANTIC WARRIORS II - About Rock in Opposition 
A Documentary by Adele Schmidt & José Zegarra Holder 
(USA / 2012 / 98 min ) 

United in their opposition to the music industry, a collective of five progressive rock bands (Henry Cow/England, Sammla Mammas Mana/Sweden, Stormy Six/Italy, Univers Zero/Belgium, Etron Fou Leloublan/France) started the "Rock In Opposition" movement (RIO) in 1978 by kicking off a festival at the New London Theatre. The movement had a short term life but spearheaded the creation of it's own sub-genre in progressive rock often referred to as "RIO music", but perhaps more appropriately labeled "avant-progressive". Despite its short life-span the movement has been influencing musicians worldwide for the past 35 years. This film chronicles the history of RIO and the music and musicians the movement has inspired. Included are dozens of snippets of live concert recordings and interviews with the musicians involved, often unknowingly, in the "RIO scene". The film is also a travelogue that follows the development of the genre from it's inception in Belgium and England, through Europe and the United States, and culminates in a visit to Carmaux, in Southern France, where the RIO Festival has been held since 2007.

Thanks for you quick reply! That is a perfectly understandable and admirable decision and, were I financially able to, I'd doubtless be supporting your endeavours by buying the physical DVDs direct from you or ReR or somesuch, but I sadly have neither the money nor space to go acquiring more DVDs.

Is there no safe/practical way to offer digital distribution direct through your website? I know it's not a direct comparison, but stand-up comedian Louis C.K. released his last special as a cheap download-only offer directly through his website, circumnavigating all those corporate monsters in the process. It'd be great if you could adopt a similar model, but there may well be technical restrictions to that which I'm not aware of.

Either way, I wish you every success with this film and look forward immensely to the day I actually get to see it!

Thanks for your comments. It may not sound consumer-friendly nowadays, but we are not planning any digital distribution at this point for RW II - About RIO. Perhaps in mid-2013 we may decide to do just that with iTunes & Amazon (N.Am./Europe/Japan). And yes, you're right the Amazon Instant service for Romantic Warriors I is just offered for the US.

During a period of one year after the film's release, we prefer to give the opportunity to sell our film to the small independent prog shops (that still exist/survive worldwide) rather than to the big giant corporations that are running the digital platforms nowadays. 

Best

Will you be giving either of these films wider digital distribution at some point? I notice the first one's available to stream from US amazon but I'm not sure I can use that service in the UK. Ideally I'd like to be able to download both, but I'd settle for streaming if it's available in the UK.

Thank you so so much for making this documentary, by the way. I hope it will not only be of interest to existing fans of RIO but will also bring this fascinating, secret musical world to the attention of  people who would never have heard of it otherwise!

This feature length film of 98 minutes brings you from Washington DC to London, from Paris to New York and from the Rocky Mountains to the Pyrenees connecting you with the old guard of the RIO movement while discovering new champions. You will listen to extraordinary music and to the testimony of extraordinary musicians, fans and individuals that have supported the so called RIO-music since 1978 when the movement was initiated by Chris Cutler of Henry Cow.
