It is not only a film about a group that has been creatively active for more than 50 years, it is also a film about music, why it matters, and the painful sacrifices artists have to make to create work that changes people’s lives—but with jokes.In keeping with King Crimson’s independent, ethical, and iconoclastic approach to the music and entertainment business, they have sidestepped traditional broadcast platforms in order to bring the film directly to their fans, without further delay or compromise.WORLDWIDE DIGITAL STREAMED EVENT BEGINS 22 OCTOBER 8:00PM BST/3:00PM EDT/12:00PM PDT
