ABOUT THE FILM
United in their opposition to the established music industry and the pressures of compromising over art, a collective of five progressive bands started in 1978 the Rock In Opposition Movement (RIO) in Europe. Today RIO remains as one of the reference points for many listeners, musicians, and distributors to describe a cooperative approach of making and distributing non-mainstream music. Even when RIO as a movement was short lived, it triggered the creation of a progressive music sub-genre, called RIO/Avant Progressive that is being used lo label contemporary bands from across the world.



PRODUCTION NOTES
This time we spent filming in Europe and the U.S. and we discovered a fountain full of musical treasures. We couldn't be happier with the friendships we made and the footage we collected, and it will be a huge thrill to share the finished movie with all of you. Until now, we've been able to fund the entire cost of production on our own. The good news is that the entire movie is shot and we have a rough cut of 82'. But as we transition into the completion phase, we need your help to get over the finish line. Our anticipated completion date is July 2012.

I made my donation yesterday, Apr 26th... and a few hours after José and Adele received it, I noticed this good news from them.-
" Wow! In just 5 days we have almost reached our fundraising goal on IndieGoGo, the trailer has already over 1200 views and online music sites all over the world are posting the campaign in support, like this one in Germany. This experience is being just amazing!"
 
This is so amazing, yet even if the initial goat is almost met, donations can go on freely and promptly in order to give more strength and consistence to the post-production and dissemination processes of this documentary (which includes a screening session at the R.I.O. festival in France).
 
Funding help secures you a place for your name in the end credits of the film.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
