UPDATE: Arcade Fire has shared an eight-minute trailer for the film. Watch above.
Following the success of 2013’s Reflektor, Arcade Fire embarked on a world-wide tour that required, among other things, black tie outfits and bobblehead masks. Oh, there was also some amazing music involved.
Now the band is putting those memories to good use. With director Kahlil Joseph at the helm (check his work with Kendrick Lamar and FKA twigs), Arcade Fire will release their feature film The Reflektor Tapes September 24. Few details surround the announcement, but the film is rumored to include footage from the recording sessions and live shows surrounding Reflektor.
Read the full statement below, via Arcade Fire Tube.
Arcade Fire will release their first feature film, The Reflektor Tapes, in theaters worldwide on September 24 for a limited time.
Directed by 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films winner Kahlil Joseph, The Reflektor Tapes will be a unique cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history. Theater listings and tickets available soon at: www.TheReflektorTapes.com
