The 'Other Side of Rock'n'Roll' reveals the unknown side of the New Wave.

The Other Side of Rock'n'Roll reveals the unknown side of the New Wave. It is a documentary about censorship in music and tax on lowbrow works. We find out about the censorship and name-calling of unfavourable musicians in the socialism, the criteria used to rate the albums of the biggest stars of the time and what this means for the promotion and success of their hits. A former member of the commission that judged the greatest names of the time, Darko Glavan, reveals how new releases were classified and what the lowbrow label meant at the time. The film screened at Pula Film Festival 2011. Silvio Mirošničenko is an award-winning director whose films were shown at the most important Croatian and international festivals.
