24 Hour Party People

Director Michael Winterbottom
United Kingdom / 117 min. / 2002 / English

Docu-fiction film about the rise and fall of the Factory Records label which, between nostalgia and irreverent comedy, captures the spirit and social context of Manchester between the late 70's and early 90's, from new wave to rave.

After going to a Sex Pistols gig, Granada TV presenter Tony Wilson creates the Factory Records label, which will spawn groups such as Joy Division, New Order and Happy Mondays, and will change the face of pop music. Later, he gets a place and sets up his own disco, Haçienda, which becomes famous throughout the world. This is a hilarious story of sex, drugs and music, narrated as a false documentary, portraying the musical movement of post-punk Manchester and acid house "Mad-chester". From 1976 to 1992, this city became an epicentre of the musical universe, giving rise to the freest sounds and new expressive paths. The film portrays the musical changes that occurred under the wing of Factory and Tony Wilson, as well as the social and political changes that took place during this time. The director of the film, Michael Winterbottom, decided to record it in digital and include several cameos, such as that of the real Tony Wilson.
