The film is packed with archival footage and an amazingly beautiful soundtrack is always flowing underneath.

It also covers Christian's unique approach and philosophy on music and life along with a tribute to the band's be album, “Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh.” It ends on an inspiring and moving section where fans from various countries share the impact that the music has had on their life.

Written & Directed by Laurent Goldstein, the film was created to be seen and enjoyed by both fans of Magma and people who do not know this music. Christian Vander's story packs an emotional wallop and is a tremendous source of inspiration for anybody who has a passion in life and wants to realize their dream.

“To Life, Death and Beyond: the Music of Magma” will premiere in Toronto at the Royal cinema on August 20th at 2:00 PM. Magma will be perfoming live at the Mod Club Theatre in Toronto that evening. The film will premiere in Montreal at the Casa Del Popolo on Aug. 22nd at 6:30 PM. Magma will perform two shows in Montreal on August 21 & 22 at the La Sala Rossa. Both film screening events will cost $10. Please note that to attend the concerts seperate tickets will need to be purchased.

Laurent Goldstein produced his first feature-length documentary, “Your Second Fifty” a motivational piece that demonstrates that in spite of prejudices and popular beliefs, there is a life after 50, and it can be amazing! The film was shot over an 18-month period, in 6 countries on 3 continents, and showcases 40 fascinating characters. It has been shown in motivational seminars throughout North America since 2015.

In 2016, he produced – partly thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign - his second feature-length documentary: “To Life, Death and Beyond: the Music of Magma,” a tribute to the cult French progressive rock band.

Re: New Magma Documentary

Guys, extraordinaire DVD documentary, sound & picture, excellent footage of a rock band, filmed on stage, backstage & real life. I not only have it but took part in the crowdfunding initiative that made it possible. Everything was fine and documented since the beginning, and I finally got my unit according the distribution calendar. A must-have for Magma fans worldwide.
