The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Paris, 1978. In a predominantly male music industry, Ana uses new electronic machines to make herself heard, creating a new sound that will mark the decades to come: the music of the future.

Featuring a tremendous lead performance from Alma Jodorowsky, director Marc Collin’s brilliant film about electronic music and cultural patriarchy is a love letter to the unacknowledged women pioneers of the French electronic music movement.

Featuring an incredible soundtrack, including music by The Human League, Throbbing Gristle, and Clara Luciani (who also stars in the film).

Shock of the Future is a feel-good tribute to a movement that had a major influence on contemporary pop music.
