PAPA SRAPA is not a typical music documentary, but rather a condensed trip to the very heart of Noise. It is loaded with music that can hurt and heal, Russian weird avant-garde and savage vigor of its preeminent performer.
The film takes us to bizarre noise festivals and performances with ravers, tripsters and freaks immersing into worlds of sonic violence and ecstatic states of mind. Together with Papa we trace Noise back to 1920-s, binding it to early Soviet avant-garde figures, such as Dziga Vertov, Arseniy Avraamov and Nikolai Kulbin.
The craftsmаn should make his own tools - so Papa makes his of old Soviet radio components and cheap junk. We show it is not just about the way he plays them, using blood and saliva, but about the way he brings them to life. His weapons, known to the best part of Russian electronic musicians.
