Synopsis by Mark Deming
Musician Michael Galinsky of the group Sleepyhead co-directed (with Suki Stetson Hawley) this look at one music fan's troubled life. Unai (Unai Fresnedo) is a young man from Spain who lives for rock and roll, spending his days listening to "music about problems" and bringing notable bands from America and Europe to his country for tours. However, things start going bad for Unai one day -- a club owner refuses to pay Unai for shows he booked, his drug dealer wants cash and wants it now, and Come, an American band Unai is bringing to Spain, are waiting to be picked up from the airport. Stuck on all sides, Unai opts to blow off everyone and hits the road with his friends Ignacio (Ignacio Fernandez) and Mary (Katy Petty) in hopes of finding something better down the highway. Radiation features concert footage from Come, Stereolab, Will Oldham, and El Inquilino Communista.
