We Never Were Here

We Never Were Here

The band “Mutter” is something of a phenomenon. Their music is, by turns, loud and brutish and tender and transient – a style that has caused both their audiences as well as a string of producers to take to their heels. And yet, although the band’s highly distinctive sound has been making a mark on the German music scene for the past 18 years, fame has somehow eluded the band itself, for “Mutter” defies all attempts at pigeonholing.

The film accompanies the band on a tour through Germany and Switzerland, interweaving private Super8 images with the band‘s history and the musicians‘ unusual biographies.
