Why You Should See This Film
Tracing history from pre-Hacienda through the ‘80s and the following 30 years of dance music’s phenomenal rise to today, Manchester Keeps on Dancing is a social study of a culture that helped put Manchester on the worldwide music map. Delving much deeper than the famous Hacienda club, Javi Senz film instead digs into archive footage that has never before been seen on film, alongside in-depth interviews and memorable stories.
