Some of the most prized modern art isn't hanging in a museum. You'll find it, instead, on bedroom walls and telephone poles, burning with nostalgia for life-changing evenings. If you've ever gone to a concert so good that wished you could take it home with you, you'll share director Scout Shannon's fondness for the legends of poster design, whose lives and communities he investigates through intimate vignettes in Just Like Being There. The same emotions that accompany the thrill of live music run throughout this brilliant documentary (part history and part manifesto): overwhelming inspiration, a connection to others and the knowledge that a beautiful thing might not last forever. Includes work from Daniel Danger, Jay Ryan, Kevin Tong, and many others.
