The Globe Theatre, Atlin, BC

Created by Yukon-based organizations Something Shows, Big Boat Records, local filmmaker Brendan Preston and a variety of musical acts, Beneath the Broadcast works as both a feature-length film and nine standalone videos. See the whole fun works on the big screen at AAMF! Filmmaker and musician Jona Barr in attendance!

Surrounded by relics and memories of the northern broadcaster’s past, the expansive layout of the CBC Yukon basement is an unreal setting for nine eclectic Yukon acts captured live in performance. Between folk, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, hip hop, doom and grunge performances, the film is a collaborative piece highlighting music makers of Whitehorse, including: Jona Barr, The Sputnik Experiment, Paris Pick, Cryptozoologists, Calla Kinglit, LOCAL BOY, The Sweeties, Groan Boy and Soda Pony.
