Are You Feeling It?
You are invited to the hottest party of the year. GROOVE is the hip, hilarious hit of the 2000 Sundance Film Festival that has audiences and critics raving from coast to coast.
As the sun goes down on Saturday night, rave kids Colin and Harmony take their relationship to the next level, veteran clubgoer Leyla surfs the internet for a lift to the rave and workaholic David just wants to make it home in one piece in order to finish his writing. By sunrise, romances ignite, hearts break, ravers dance to the groove of the music and lives are changed forever.
This masterpiece portrays one night in the San Francisco underground rave scene. Through a single email, the word spreads that a huge rave is going to take place in an abandoned warehouse. John Digweed has a cameo as himself and also contributed to the soundtrack with Nick Muir, under their production alias Bedrock. Groove tells the story of an all-night rave. The film is broken up into segments and features real-life DJ’s like DJ Forest Green, WishFM, Polywog, and Digweed. It follows David Turner, who becomes a reluctant raver when his brother Colin drags him to the rave.
The film has such a true and vibrant vibe that will keep the audience guessing, dancing and wanting for more. Full with unexpected sounds and a great twist, you will not be able to take your eyes of the screen.
Featuring live performances by DJ Polywoog, DJ Forest Green, DJ WishFM and Digweed himself, Groove will take you on an amazing rollercoaster that will chnage the way you view and think about the rave scene.
Taking the idea when back in the day you, the reader had to wait until the end of the day in order to jump in your vehicle to a remote location that was unknown only 24 hours prior to the event. A night that will change your life in a different way and will make you become a better human being. True, the movie’s explicit graphic nature in sexuality, sexual orientation, drug use and the overall rave scene has made a shocking revelation about the reality of the rave culture not only in San Francisco but all over the world.
This independent film directed and produced by Greg Harrison became an eye opener to the reality of the effects of the known designer drug MDMA and other drugs that are ususally taking at a rave. People dress a certain way, they take certain drugs and is not about Rock and Roll. Totally different than any other movie I have ever seen, Groove has opened my mind to what really happens in abandoned warehouses when no one is around and you are just left with trance music, positive vibes, electricity, the level of the mind and the power of human kindness under the influnece of pure MDMA.
The performances given by the actors were nearly as real as someone taking and interacting at a rave under MDMA. Groove literally jumps off the screen!
It is an electrified sensation!
Sheer visceral excitement!
Vibrant and winning!
