In the Spanish music documentary Introspective, young director Aram Garriga traces the trail of post-rock, a term coined in the second half of the 1990s by the renowned music magazine The Wire. Thus, a new label was found for a musical genre which included all the bands that previously had been eluding every musical definition (and which therefore were considered as barely marketable). In addition to numerous live clips from bands such as Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Mogwai and Mouse on Mars, this movie also features interviews with indie rock stars such as Thurston Moore, Ira Kaplan, Noel Gallagher, Stuart Braithwaite and many more.

Adam Garriga was born in Barcelona in 1979. He studied Audiovisual Communication and received a research fellowship at the University of Barcelona. He graduated with the award-winning short filmlet "The King is Dead" (2001). Since 2001, Garriga has been working as a cutter, screenplay writer and director. He has created numerous music and image videos. He also founded the production company theVisualSuspects in 2005."

Apparently the documentary was released in 2007. Wonder whether it's been released on DVD?

Thanks to Markus for translating the piece above from German.
