The Velvet Underground floated right on the underground American scene, we all knew. But the event witnessed - or will it be fictionalized? - by the duo Tony Jannelli and Robert Pietri is at least curious: in the mid-60s, Lou Reed, John Cale and company, perform at a high school party. In an almost mysterious and distorted appearance, they play songs that would become iconic, like Heroin or Venus in Furs, even before a local group garage rock conventional take the students to the red. An animated narrative that returns the "banana album" to the ever teenage spirits. (Alexandra João Martins)
