Set in 11 cities and 7 countries, the director went on a global trip to find out what role vinyl plays in the 21st century. Devotion, ecstasy, infatuation and agony are the feelings that unite the portrayed record collectors, DJs, musicians and artists. 18:15-19:30, free entrance, Scopitone Café, Kleine Zaal Schouwburg

Music mediums are changing relentlessly (iPods, downloading and now the SoundCloud), and thus tapes and CDs have fallen from grace without much regret. But paradoxically, one format appears to be on its way back: the vinyl record is coveted more than ever by an increasing number of collectors and professionals.
Vinylmania - When Life Runs at 33 Revolutions Per Minute demonstrates how global this phenomenon is, with testimonies by recognized artists including Philippe Cohen Solal (Gotan Project), Winston Smith (Dead Kennedys, Green Day record sleeve artist), Peter Saville (Joy Division, New Order record sleeve artist) and DJ Kentaro (2002 DMC World DJ Champion).
Each vinyl-fanatic has his or her own arguments. Some verge dangerously close to the brink of a pathological collector’s drive, but at the end of this documentary many will empathise with them.
