A thrilling documentary film
to celebrate the famous
rock band's thirtieth anniversary
a film by Gert-Peter BRUCH
photographer and musician, Gert-Peter Bruch is following in the
footsteps of the rock band that was at the source of his own vocation:
Stewart Copeland, drummer and founder
of the band, is the main guide of this journey trhough time and space,
which starts in Paris, the city where Sting wrote 'Roxanne', back in
1977. That classic song would change the destiny of a then unsuccessfull
punk trio for ever. From Munich to Los-Angeles, we
also meet Sting, Andy Summers, as well as many other main contributors,
like the former guitarist Henry Padovani..
Directed in the original form of an investigation, 'The Police, Set Them
3' unveils the secret files of three super cops who once ruled the rock
world. The film also tries to answer a few recurent questions :
Whatever made it possible that, at the end of the Seventies and in only
five albums, the son of a CIA agent based in the Middle-East who
happened to be a Hendrix fan, a teacher from the North of England
passionate about jazz and a studio guitarist from Blackpool, well into
his thirties, went from barely existing as a false punk group to
becoming the biggest "new-wave" trio of the planet?
and why will they be driven apart as early as 1984, at the peak of their
has the band resisted so well to time erosion and why have the Police
never reunited since their glory days?
This is the true story of The Police,
yesterday, today... and for ever.
