|Winner of many awards such as the Golden Gate Award, the European Film Award, the Grand Prix International and more, this film combines the related fields of cinema direct with improvisational music. The filmmakers turned on the camera spontaneously, reacting to instantaneous inspiration. In turn, noted musician Fred Frith shows the integral link between all forms of music by connecting with primal rock music, traditional Japanese percussion, North African pop to techno music and beyond, while showing his genuine love and artistry for all things musical. STEP ACROSS THE BORDER was voted by Cahiers du Cinema to be one the One Hundred most important movies in film history in 2000.
