鈴木の禅、積極性、不屈の精神、そして驚くべき忍耐力は、ミシェル・ハイウェイ監督の新しいドキュメンタリー『エネルギー:ダモ鈴木ドキュメンタリー』の中心となっている。

(ガーディアン紙 - ダニエル・ディラン・レイ)

 

ENERGY: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT DAMO SUZUKI
An existential journey through the power of healing with enigmatic frontman Damo Suzuki.

Critically-acclaimed director Michelle Heighway has been working with iconic musician Damo Suzuki since 2014, culminating in ENERGY.

The film shows five years of Suzuki’s life in Germany and the United Kingdom as he confronts cancer and attempts to continue a never-ending global tour.

By working with a constantly-changing network of ‘sound carriers’, Suzuki has been touring the world as a unique presence for 20 years. But his movements came to a stop when he was diagnosed with cancer.

The documentary examines the past, present and future of Suzuki’s influential music, from his beginnings with legendary band CAN, to his singular outlook on life, creativity, and survival.

The enigmatic Suzuki is known for his work in the legendary band CAN, becoming the group’s singer after being spotted by Holger Czukay while performing bare-chested on the streets of 1960s Berlin.

As Suzuki fights cancer we’re taken on a colourful, thought provoking, humorous and free-thinking journey, which often finds the viewer willing the strength for Damo to survive the operations and begin his touring again.

With animation of Damo's lucid, hospital bed dreams of starvation, riding on motorbikes for food, old cartoons, hypnotised brainwashed birds, Michelle pieces together a beautiful portrait. This is augmented by vintage archive footage and access to his carefully preserved treasure trove of memories, made up of old photos, drawings, posters and more.

As seen @ Doc' n Roll Film Festival 2022

 

Suzuki’s zen, positivity, dogged spirit and remarkable endurance is at the heart of a new documentary, Energy: A Film About Damo Suzuki, by Michelle Heighway. Shot over five years, it follows Suzuki as he attempts to continue a neverending global tour while mounting a herculean battle against a cancer that would see him operated on 40 times between 2014 and 2017. “The faith and resilience in his character is endless and I love that,” says Heighway. “It was so inspiring how he lived each day and moment like it was his only one. He was always in the now.” The Guardian / Daniel Dylan Wray
