Gogol Bordello Non-Stop is a 2008 music documentary film, written and directed by Margarita Jimeno and starring Gogol Bordello and Eugene Hütz.


A vibrant chronicle of one of today’s most notorious and revered live bands, Gogol Bordello, and front man Eugene Hütz’s gypsy-punk Ukrainian immigrant. Filmmaker Margarita Jimeno tracks their raucous gigs from 2001 to 2007, from NYC to Italy, as the band rises from dingy basements to international main-stages, from underground legends to international rock stars, music is non-stop.

Critical response[edit]

“In Gogol Bordello Non-Stop Eugene Hutz emerges as a passionate, articulate philosopher of punk’s democratic participatory aesthetic who espouses the rejection of social hierarchies in concerts that are raucous, bacchanalian performance-art carnivals.” — Stephen Holden, The New York Times



“Margarita managed to not only portray a band, but also the social aspects of being an immigrant and taking the responsibility to play with identities. Also the film is fresh, enjoyable and punk". The Jury

The jury consisted of three members; Johannes Klein, the head of the Jury and the International Programming Coordinator of the In Edit International Music Documentary and Film Festival in Barcelona; Jouko Aaltonen, a Finnish director specialising in documentaries and Laura M. Kiralfy, a manager of Filmkontakt Nord Nordisk Forum for Co-Financing of Documentaries during Nordisk Panorama 5 Cities Film Festival.
