KING CRIMSON – ” In The Court Of The Crimson King

Posted: October 14, 2022 in MUSIC

What began as a straightforward documentary about the cult rock band King Crimson as it turned 50, mutated into an exploration of time, death, family, and the transcendent power of music to change lives.

DGM Ltd is delighted to announce the public launch of the highly anticipated documentary ‘In the Court of the Crimson King, King Crimson at 50,’ directed by Toby Amies (The Man Whose Mind Exploded). King Crimson have always pioneered their own uncompromisingly independent route, and this documentary, 4 years in the making, has followed the same path.

The film explores the “acute suffering” and transcendent glory experienced by current and former members of King Crimson, allowing the audience an intimate and sometimes uncomfortable insight into the musicians’ experience as they confront life and death head on in the world’s most demanding rock band. ‘In the Court of the Crimson King’ is not only a film about a group that has been creatively active for 50 years it’s also a film about music, why it matters, and the painful sacrifices artists have to make in order to create work that changes people’s lives,

A film by Toby Amies recording the relentless suffering and fleeting glory of playing in the world’s most demanding rock band: King Crimson. Contains extraordinary music, complex time signatures, meditations on mortality, and bad jokes.
