There will be limited screenings here in September
Arcade Fire's The Reflektor Tapes is coming to select Irish cinemas from September 24 for a limited time only.
A big hit at the recent Toronto International Film Festival, it's the companion to their 2014 chart-topper and looks gorgeous!
"The film recontextualises the album experience, transporting the viewer into a kaleidoscopic sonic and visual landscape," reads the blurb. "It charts the band’s creative journey as they lay foundations for the album in Jamaica, commence recording sessions in Montreal and play an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of Carnival, before bringing their breathtaking live show to packed arenas in Los Angeles and London.
"Audiences will relive stunning concerts from the Reflektor tour, re-envisioned in true cinema high definition and surround sound. The film will also offer a rare opportunity for fans to delve beneath the surface and get closer to the band themselves, fluidly blending in never before seen personal footage, including interviews, documentation of the recording process and moments captured by the band themselves, to dazzling effect."
