A Mindpirates production
Directed by Ralf Schmerberg
What Difference Does It Make? is a feature film about when a person decides to become a musician, about everything that they’re going to encounter in their life and the journey they embark on. The film features many groundbreaking musicians such as Brian Eno, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Giorgio Moroder, James Murphy, Debbie Harry, Egyptian Lover, Stephen O’Malley and many more. The Red Bull Music Academy is one of the frameworks of the film – a world-traveling series of music workshops and festivals that every year hosts fifty of the most forward-thinking young musicians in a different city. The story follows the young participants of the 2013 session in New York as they arrive in the Big Apple, work together and discover the rich possibilities of being a musician today. The city of New York provides a fascinating setting for their explorations, for the trials and tribulations that come with the decision to boldly live out one’s dream.
