Part Of The Weekend Never Dies is a documentary into Radio Soulwax, a touring concept that for the past three years has showcased the talents of four Belgians (Soulwax) who themselves programmed and promoted, DJd and played live each and every night alongside a revolving array of their friends and some of the most exciting acts in modern music, traveling relentlessly through the four corners of the globe under the banner of Radio Soulwax. Recorded over 120 shows with one camera in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia with acclaimed young director Saam Farahmand, their efforts resulted in two films. The first is Part Of The Weekend Never Dies, a documentary that captures the adulation, debauchery, ebullience, reflection, cynicism, tiredness, despair, delusion, ridiculousness, contradiction, revelation, exhaustion, homesickness of the life of a DJ/band on the road, which includes 2manydj’s and Soulwaxs Nite Versions live footage, and also features James Murphy, Nancy Whang, Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Kitsuné & Klaxons in behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. The second is a live film that captures perfectly the blissful and beautiful sonic malevolence of Soulwaxs Nite Versions blitzkrieg. Directed by Soulwax and Saam Farahmand Editor : Kurt Augustyns Director of Photography : Saam Farahmand Producers : Sasha Nixon & Grace Bodie for Partizan Films
