Upside Down: The Creation Records Story

UK/English (101 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Primal Scream. My Bloody Valentine. Jesus & Mary Chain. Super Furry Animals. Oasis. Just a few of the bands discovered and signed by legendary (and legendarily excessive) music exec Alan McGhee’s Creation Records. Now, a decade after it folded - this is the definitive film about Creation Records, one of the world's most successful (and quite possibly insane) independent labels.

Though Creation racked up millions in sales on both sides of the Atlantic, Upside Down documents in dizzying fashion the (near) bankruptcies; the pills, thrills, spats, and prats; the successes, excesses, pick me ups, and breakdowns; all while serving up some of THE defining music of the late 20th Century.

This is the definitive, critically-adored, fully authorized story of the UK's most inspired and dissolute label, and a time capsule of an era when record labels were the lifeblood of the music industry.
