I Am Weekender
Groundbreaking 1992 music film Weekender, coupled with Chloé Raunet’s documentary about the making of the film and its enduring impact, offering a unique insight into the heart of acid house.
Director: Wiz and Chloé Raunet
Fuelled by Flowered Up’s epic soundtrack, WIZ’s Weekender was a film ahead of its time. A journey into 1990s club and drug culture, it received an 18 certificate and was banned on mainstream TV. Since then, the film has gained genuine cult status. Now fully restored from the original negative, this tangible document of the British rave scene is coupled with Chloé Raunet’s feature-length documentary about the making of the film and its enduring impact, offering a unique insight into the heart of acid house.
In this presentation the original music video, Weekender, follows Raunet’s documentary feature.
