“art rock? The Popular Esoteric is a music documentary about Vancouver, featuring performances by bands through director KC Wei’s music as public art treatment. Recorded over 4 years (2014-2018), the film follows the evolution of an underground art rock scene, celebrating the weird and beautiful practices of those who continue to rub against the grain.”
