Christine Franz’s ‘Bunch of Kunst’ gets a nationwide release

With preview screenings scheduled for early April in Liverpool, London and Birmingham, UK distributor Munro Films has today confirmed a nationwide release for Bunch of Kunst, the debut feature from Christine Franz, playing at select cinemas across the UK on 21 April, 2017.

A powerful look at the life of Nottingham punk duo, Sleaford Mods, Bunch of Kunst follows the band from bedroom recording sessions to chart success.

Over a two-year period in the UK and Europe, director/producer Franz, a Berlin-based music journalist, filmed former chicken factory worker Jason Williamson, his beatmaker band mate Andrew Fearn, and their manager, Steve Underwood, bus driver and avant-garde bedroom label owner.

With candour and humour, Bunch of Kunst tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms.

Franz commented:

“I first met Sleaford Mods for my day job as a music editor for (French-German public TV network) ARTE’s weekly music programme TRACKS. It was kind of a band crush at first hearing. My idea was to make a film that was as DIY and as rough around the edges as the band itself”.

“[the film] charts the uncompromising and self-made rise of a band who worked to their own rule book. The film captures the long bleak grind of that hard work without any hint of sentimental rose-tinted retrospect. It’s the real deal. Enjoy it. You won’t see it too often”

– Steve Underwood, Sleaford Mods manager/Harbinger Sound

Bunch of Kunst is released in cinemas from April 21 through Munro Films
