R.E.M. Film Coming to Athens


R.E.M. played in Dublin, Ireland for five nights in a row in 2007.  During this stint overseas, the cameras stayed rolling and captured the entire experience on film.  Now, the hour-long film, entitled This is Not A Show, can be viewed in theatres across the country!

The film was directed by Parisian independent filmmaker Vincent Moon along with Jeremiah and had its world premiere in Minneapolis last month during the Sound Unseen Festival.  Europe got its first taste of the film during the Darklight Festival in Dublin.

Those of you in the Athens eager to catch a glimpse of Mike Mills, Michael Stipe and Peter Buck on the big screen can head to Hotel Indigo on October 26.  More information can be found at the hotel’s official website.
