Conny Plank was the producer who shaped Germany’s electronic music sound like no other, influencing the development of ambient, new wave, hip-hop, house and techno in the process. Brian Eno, David Bowie, Neu!, Devo and Ultravox all worked with him; he famously turned down U2 in 1984 saying he could not work with Bono. When Conny died at the age of 47, his son Stephan was only 13. Twenty-five years later, Stephan searches for his father’s artistic legacy and creates a wondrous account filled with archive footage and emotional insight into the life of this seminal sonic trailblazer.
