Arcade Fire Stun With First Feature Film Release

If you’ve still got 2013's album 'Reflektor' making the regular rotations on your playlists, or keeping tracks from 'The Suburbs' or 'Funeral'still breathing intense fire into your life, then this news is set to tickle - Arcade Fire are releasing their first feature film, 'The Reflektor Tapes', coming to cinemas around the world in September!

Take a peek at the trailer

The Reflektor Tapes is directed by 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films winner Kahlil Joseph, and produced by award-winning studio Pulse Films (20,000 Days on Earth, Shut Up And Play The Hits). It is a unique film of authentic cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history.

The film is a fascinating insight into the making of Arcade Fire’s critically acclaimed, international #1 album Reflektor. The film recontextualizes the album experience, transporting the viewer into a kaleidoscopic sonic and visual landscape. It charts the band’s creative journey through Jamaica, recording sessions in Montreal and play an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of Carnival, and breath-taking live show’s in Los Angeles and London. Arcade Fire states “There were parts of the Reflektor tour where I think we, Arcade Fire, came the closest in our careers to putting on stage what we imagined in our heads. We were insanely lucky to have Kahlil Joseph documenting from the very beginning."

The Reflektor Tapes will treat you in HD, surround sound (BN – Before Netflix) with unseen personal footage, interviews, documentation of recording process and moments captured by the band themselves, to dazzling effect, allowing you to delve deeper into the minds and lives of the all encompassing musical gods that is Arcade Fire. If you’re not putty in the warm gripping palm of greatness yet, the film will also give viewers the VIP access to a never before heard track!

This will be a unique chance to join with fans around the world in a sit down audience, and experience a cinema only spectacular, showing at Event Cinemas for a limited time only.

Oh, and let's sweeten this a little- to accompany the film announcement, Arcade Fire have also released an exclusive new music video for the track “Porno”, created by Joseph and featuring footage from The Reflektor Tapes.
