MANIC STREET PREACHERS: NO MANIFESTO in PUNK/INDIE

No Manifesto is a movie about the Welsh band Manic Street Preachers. It's the story of four lads from a Welsh mining town and how they came to be one of the biggest bands in the world. Still struggling to come to grips with their Welsh identity and their tragic past, the Manics, like their music, are opinionated, introspective, inflammatory and as Castro so aptly put it, ”Louder than war!” This documentary was shot around the time of the "Send Away the Tigers" album.

"One of the best things about this Manic Street Preachers documentary from director Elizabeth Marcus and producer Kurt Engfehr is that it dispenses with the usual cast of journalists and talking heads, and lets a wealth of brilliant footage speak for itself."
