Following them on their two-year journey from Sherwood to chart success, award-winning music documentary Bunch of Kunst tells the story of three guys taking on the music business on their own terms „This documentary film is the perfect antidote to those sexy, racy, rock’n’roll yawns most bands hide behind.
