As innovative as they are influential, Kraftwerk's contribution to the development of electronic music remains unsurpassed. Having inspired everyone from Bowie to Coldplay and Siouxsie to Radiohead, this collective has also proven partly responsible for the development of entire genres, such as electronica, synthpop, and techno. This film reviews the career and music of Kraftwerk, from their inception in the late 1960s (as the pre-Kraftwerk ensemble Organization), through their most celebrated period in the mid 1970s, and culminating with their resurgence during the 1980s with the popularity of synthpop and techno. The program further explores how Kraftwerk both fitted in and pulled away from the electronic wing of what is often lazily referred to as "Krautrock." Features rarely seen photographs, live and studio footage of Kraftwerk and their contemporaries, and exclusive interviews with former Kraftwerk members, other German ambient and electronic musicians, and German academics, writers and journalists.
