Award-winning film, BEATS, is making its way to Australian cinemas next week.

Set in Scotland in 1994, the movie follows mates Johnno and Spanner on a quest for the ultimate night in the illegal rave scene of their town during the time of the UK’s Criminal Justice Act which gave police the ability to remove people from events “wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beat.” Rated R due to its intense exploration of life at the time which includes violence and drug use, it’s a new perspective on a classic coming-of-age story.

The film picked up two British Independent Film Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Sound and features an incredible soundtrack with cuts from the likes of The ProdigyHudson MohawkeOrbitalHWLS69 (Carl Craig) and many more. The movie will be airing in select cinemas across the country, including cinemas in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne from next week.
