Not Available (It’s About Yann Keller)

Italy, 2022, 39' 

In the world of music, no less than in any other artistic field, poseurs abound – those that ‘act as if….’ This is not the case of Yann Keller. His life seems to have been entirely devoted to making music spring forth in the most unexpected places. This is the story told in Not Available – It’s About Yann Keller, a medium-length documentary directed by Federico Savonitto and Gianni Sirch that sneaks into the bizarre daily life of Keller, who lives shut in his workshop chasing his obsession for sound, breathing life into inert and industrial matter to extract sounds from it. The traces of a punk past – nail polish, earrings – are a dissonant phenotypic sign, adding a nuance of contradiction to his worker-inventor’s approach. The almost childish surprise shown by Keller in front of the electricity pylons is more effective than a thousand words in conveying the sensitiveness concealed behind the restless, mystic look as industrial musician. A “not available” artist and man by definition, save for the exclusive shots of Savonitto and Sirch, now a world premiere for Festival dei Popoli.
