For four days every November, Le Guess Who? turns the entire city of Utrecht into a marvelous melting pot of music and artistic experimentation, bringing together a plethora of incredibly diverse and cutting-edge artists spanning genres, generations and the globe. Last year, during its 12th edition, Portuguese platform Canal180 set about capturing and documenting what makes Le Guess Who? so unique. A new short film entitled Representing the Underrepresented is the fruit of it, featuring some of the artists that enriched last year´s line up, including Shabaka Hutchings, Richard Fearless, Jacco Gardner, Vashti Bunyan and Go Kurosawa, and also interviews with members of the Le Guess Who? team. As Canal180 puts it, with Representing the Underrepresented they “intended to listen to these artists, curators and organizers in order to understand their view and their willingness to change the monocultural Europe and US-focused perspective that seems to dominate our current times.”
First premiered last weekend at the MIL Festival in Lisbon, the film is now available to stream, and you can read more about it on canal180.pt. We can’t help but think that by watching it, you won´t want to miss the 13th edition of Le Guess Who? this November.
Le Guess Who? 2019 takes place from 7 – 10 November in several venues in Utrecht and 4-Day Festival Passes are available now on leguesswho.com. Save the date and grab your tickets now.
