After the terrific turn-out in Clapham for the last Euro premiere in London, it’s now up to the Argentineans to see out 2012 for Recoil. Buenos Aires will host a second South American screening of ‘A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST’ on Thursday, December 20th at the Cinema Village Recoleta.
Recoil fans will remember the special evening back in 2010 during the ‘Selected Events’ tour, where ‘A Strange Hour’ was presented in Buenos Aires at Niceto Club. This time, fans can come together and experience the full HD concert film projected in a professional state-of-the-art cinema with 5.1 surround sound. 

Due to previously confirmed screening events currently taking place in Europe, Alan will not be able to attend personally. Nevertheless, there will be an After-party at Unplug Bar for everyone who wants to come along, featuring local DJs. Entrance will be free, with a free drink included for all cinema ticket holders!

To be assured a seat for the screening, get your tickets in advance – do not leave it until the day. Pre-sold ticket-holders also receive a free A3 poster which can be collected at the cinema on arrival. 
Accompanying Recoil’s Blu-ray release of the film directed by Attila Herkó, this unique event is being brought to you through the efforts of Ricardo Merin (Depeche Mode Tributo Argentino) in conjunction with Village Cines, and supported by the dedicated team that followed Alan Wilder & Paul Kendall during those special concerts in Argentina.

Also at the Recoil Official Store :

This item has now completely sold out and, at this time, will not be re-stocked. We had intended to produce more but now that the contents of the stick are in the public domain, predictably enough, the inevitable copying and sharing of files via illegal sites has begun. This is what every artist has to contend with these days. We urge every music fan to stop for a moment and just think each time you share a music file which has not been purchased through official channels.
