Preview: Ibiza – Silent Movie

Ibiza - silent movie

Don’t be fooled by the title- this is not a silent movie. You can watch this experimental documentary by Julien Temple one of two ways  – you can hitch along on a visual reminiscence of Ibiza pre and post the dance music invasion, or you can sit back close your eyes and immerse yourself in a musical soundtrack selected by Norman ‘Fatboy Slim’ Cook. 

It’s a bit of a curiosity for sure, Temple’s fascination with the island and its hedonistic past from the Phoenicians through the Romans to Mediterranean artist idyll before chronicling its rebirth as Europe’s dance capital and the emergence of the super clubs.

Ibiza: Silent Movie – Friday at 10.00pm on BBC Four.
