Iron Maiden: Behind the Iron Curtain (1985)
1h · Documentary, Music · 1 April 1985
Tearing down the wall of segregation Iron Maiden: Behind the Iron Curtain is both concert footage and historical document conjoining Iron Maiden's journey into the closed world of the Communist Bloc that highlights the crossing of the line of conformist West into the rebellious East. A reminiscence of times long gone, for both Eastern Europe, and Iron Maiden and their World Slavery Tour of August 1984 to July 1985. It is a tour of an oppressive regime that brings the East's heavy-metal subculture out and proudly head-banging to tracks such as 2 Minutes to Midnight, The Trooper, The Number of the Beast and Aces High, amongst others. With a wonderful nostalgic and reflective feel of a world far removed from the present, with band interviews and fans' thoughts and reactions to this British heavy-metal band and the rebellious soundtrack to the phenomenon that is life behind the Iron Curtain.
