Em jeito de comemoração dos 15 anos da banda, The Parkinsons vão estrear um documentário intitulado "The Parkinsons: A Long Way To Nowhere", realizado por Caroline Richards com cerca de 98 minutos.

Para já, as exibições estão confirmadas neste mês de Dezembro em Inglaterra, com estreia no dia 14.

Aguarda-se que chegue rapidamente ao nosso país...

London. The dawn of the new Millenium. The Britpop party is over and the UK music scene is suffering from a severe hangover. The promise that Things Can Only Get Better now seems like a distant dream. Then, as if from nowhere, The Parkinsons burst onto the scene and give the music business a shot in the arm and a kick up the arse. Singer Afonso, guitarist Victor, and bassist Pedro, met in their home town of Coimbra, Portugal - land of Madeira, Catholicism and boredom. Relocating to London, in search of adventure, they teamed up with fiery Scottish drummer Chris Low. They swiftly built a reputation for chaos, revealing their penchant for getting naked on stage and attempting to abuse anyone or anything that refused to worship at their altar of rock'n'roll damnation. In the shadows, The Libertines and Razorlight were taking notes. Having conquered London, The Parkinsons were unleashed onto the rest of the UK, receiving ecstatic responses and rave reviews wherever they went. By 2002, The Parkinsons were plastered all over the press, radio, TV, and every major UK music festival – upsetting everybody from venue staff to the Queen in the process. Undeterred, Japan welcomed them with open arms and snapped them up for the biggest ever tour undertaken there by a Western band. The Parkinsons’ story is extraordinary. But was their journey just a long way to nowhere? Find out in this unique, hilarious, moving and ultimately deeply human story of maximum rock’n’roll, the likes of which we are unlikely to see again.

This special screening of The Parkinsons: A Long Way to Nowhere will take place at the legendary Prince Charles Cinema in central London, on the 15th anniversary of The Parkinsons' first ever gig at the St Moritz Club.

The screening will be followed by an after-party at the St Moritz Club. This will be FREE to all cinema ticket holders.
