Elephant 6 documentary hits US film festivals, streaming online

In 2019, CB Stockfleth’s documentary A future story from: The Elephant 6 Recording Co. was made available exclusively on VHS, with fans required to “rent” copies of the film by mail. About three years later, an updated version of the documentary will be released widely; it will be screened at three US film festivals and made available for online streaming in the United States. Watch a trailer for the film below.

Now simply titled The recording company Elephant 6., the film will make its world premiere at the Doc NYC festival on November 10, followed by additional screenings at the Denver Film Festival and the Sound Unseen Festival in Minneapolis later that month. The updated 2022 version of the film includes additional footage from Lance Bangs, who was brought in as a producer for the film’s re-release. The film is produced by Rob Hatch-Miller and edited and produced by Greg King, who was part of the team behind the 2020 documentary on New York’s Other Music.

The New York screening will be followed by a Q&A with Stockfleth, Greg King, Lance Bangs, Rob Hatch-Miller and Robert Schneider of Apples in Stereo. The official screening of Doc NYC will take place on November 10 at the IFC Center in Manhattan. The film includes interviews with Jeff Mangum and Robert Schneider, as well as cameos from Elijah Wood, James Mercer, Danger Mouse, David Cross and more.

“I had been doing music videos and concert videos for our friends and decided to do a big six-camera shoot for an Apples concert in 2007,” Stockfleth said in a statement shared with Deadline. “I think Robert was impressed with how it turned out and asked me one evening what I thought I would do with a film about the members of the Elephant 6 collective – at the time I knew nothing He seemed to think that my small-town origins, temperament, and perseverance, along with his blessing, would allow me to enter their somewhat secretive and protective world. .

Following screenings in New York, Denver and Minneapolis, the film will be available for home streaming for a limited time. Viewers in the United States will be able to watch the film online between November 11 and November 27.
