Hawley and Michael Galinksy
has been a concert promoter since he was 15 years old. Now it's years
later, and Unai is still on the road, promoting bands in and around Madrid,
selling speed to make ends meet, snorting speed to make things worse,
and pretty sick of the whole scene. In debt to his family and his dealer,
shamelessly using and abusing his friends, hešs spiraling out of control.
He gets a bit of the old magic back when he meets Mary, an American poetry
slammer who he thinks has star potential. But Unai may be too addicted
to his reckless lifestyle for even the dazzling Mary to turn it around.
Fresh from the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, RADIATION is an evocative,
hard-edged look at the grind of small time concert touring (with appearances
by such bands as Come, Stereolab, and Will Oldham), blessed with terrific
performances, a razor-sharp script, and a captivating Spanish backdrop.
