Via City Weekend we learn that the documentary film about last year’s Converse-sponsored (and Split Works organized) Love Noise rock music tour of China is now viewable at a DVD player near you. Love Noise put Beijing bands PK14 and Queen Sea Big Shark on a converted bus and sent them on a two-week, six-city tour during the height of Olympics craziness last August. The trailer to the Love Noise film is embedded in this post, and after the jump you’ll find a slew of related clips, uploaded to YouTube six days ago. The director’s first name is Hammer, so it’s got to be good.
(According to CW, “Spend RMB200 in any Converse shop in Shanghai and receive a copy [of Love Noise] for free from Jan. 17 while stocks last.”)
