A 30 minute documentary filmed at the Glasgow Mod Weekender.
How does mod culture survive while others fade away? Join Emma-Rosa Dias on her journey to find out why mod never left.
Youth subcultures often come and go over time. They get very popular, very quickly, before being replaced by whichever fad comes next. However, it seems that there is one exception to the rule.
Mod culture may have been most visible in the 1960s and 1980s, but the underground scene has always survived and stayed as vibrant as ever.
Now, Belfast-based TV producer and presenter, Emma-Rosa Dias, is digging deeper into the mod scene to find out what makes this subculture so different.
“There’s a great story waiting to be told about the mod scene.” Said Emma. “It always connects with so many people. Generation after generation reinvents it in its own way but at its heart it has changed surprisingly little.”
The self-funded project is a labour of love for former DJ manager and club events organiser. Her lifelong fascination with the mods started when she was a child, as she watched them come and go from her mother’s popular record shop, Blinkers, during the mod revival of the early 1980s.
'It’s a complete lifestyle that people really cherish and protect. I was lucky enough to meet a lot of people in the research for my documentary and I am so grateful they shared it with me. I decided to document my journey in exploring this amazing culture. The next step is to develop this story in a series of documentaries on mods world wide. I’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg and there’s so much more I have to explore and many more key people I have to meet. I hope I can take it further and start to get funding. If the support and feedback continues to be as good as it has been then that’s exactly what I’ll do.”
The DVD will play in all regions. There are a few postage options which include packaging costs. Thank you and enjoy!
