This film is very different to KrenĀ“s previous films, due to the extreme movement of the camera. It was to have been a reportage on an underground festival that was on tour in Germany and Switzerland. Kren said that, at that time, he was "trying out" a mixture containing amphetamines and alcohol, and that sometimes he did not even know what he was doing. He shot the film "from the hip," with the result that the film, along with the music, presented a very authentic impression of the festival.
