A British film that was shot at major European rock festivals, and features ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, will get its world premiere at Liverpool Sound City 2011.

‘Powder’, from the producers of ‘Awaydays’, stars Liam Boyle, Alfie Allen and Ralf Little in a rock n’ roll story, adapted from the 2000 book of the same name.

Also showing at the festival is ‘Beats of Freedom or How to Overthrow a Totalitarian Regime with the Use of a Homemade Amplifier’, a feature about the birth and evolution of rock music in Poland in the face of the communist regime.

A documentary about American tattooist, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins will also screen, titled ‘Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry’.
