Integrating vérité, never-before-seen archival material and an entrancing soundtrack, this feature documentary explores the origins and workings of the Martenot, and draws us inexorably into its spell. A modern-day story set against a historical background, Wavemakers is a journey into the very heart of the mystery of music.
With Wavemakers, Caroline Martel returns with the signature approach that turned her first feature doc about telephone operators into a "non-stop visual and intellectual stimulation... an enormously creative documentary." (Variety). She pursues her fascination with culture and technology, using her distinctive blend of humanism, lyricism and experimentation.
