Divided States of America - Laibach 2004 Tour

Divided States of America

The film captures the American tour of the Slovenian post-avant-garde group Laibach. The concerts took place in 2004, at the same time as the American Presidential elections, in which George W. Bush won his second term in office. The first of the fifteen concerts takes place in Washington a day after the election results are announced. Dark clouds cover the sky and it is raining. Podgoršek films in the United States at a time when it is waging a war in Afghanistan and Iraq and combating the world-wide threat of terrorism. These events are dividing the United States. In addition to the film we show five music videos done by Sašo Podgoršek for Laibach. GOD IS GOD (1996) TANZ MIT LAIBACH (2003) DAS SPIEL IST AUS (2004) MAMA LEONE (2004) ANGLIA (2006)
