In a couple of days, a big movie is coming for the Dance music community, and not just because it talks about the historic Electric Daisy Carnival in 2010. “The Last Dance” will talk extensively about the beginnings of the movement in America towards harm reduction. The film promises “rare and never-before-seen footage” and will be free to stream on both YouTube and Vimeo.
The movie is Written and Directed by Le Liu, who went to San Francisco State University for Filmmaking, going on to work on a show about families dealing with addiction. Liu started working for the California chapter of Harm Reduction organization DanceSafe in 1999 and was working on a vlog series leading up to EDC 2010 in LA. These clips came together to forge this story.
“Needless to say, electronic music and harm reduction are near and dear to my heart,” Liu says on his website. “To this day, I still consider EDC 2010 – both the festival itself as well as all the conversation and changes which came out of it – to be one of the most unique and significant events in the history of dance culture safety. I am honored to share this documentary with you, and hope you walk away remembering this story with as much meaning as I’ve held all these years.”
Check out the trailer for the film below.
Please Note: Insomniac had no involvement in the making of this EDC documentary. This all from the mind of Le Liu. (Photo Credit: RUKES.com)
