Arcade Fire’s The Reflektor Tapes- In Cinema’s
Musicians are fond of documentaries. No matter the genre, it has become a huge step in one artist’s career to be at the centre of a cinematographic point of view. However, not all of them will get to experience this step.
The award-winning indie-rock band Arcade Fire has just released ‘The Reflektor Tapes’ in theatres – a one and a half hour documentary shot by director Kahlil Joseph. As expected from this experimental band, the documentary is meant to “be a unique cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history.”
After the release of their amazing fourth album in 2013, Reflektor, the band members have been experiencing many things in group or as solo artists. They have composed the original music of Spike Jonze’s ‘Her‘ in 2013 and William Butler, lead-singer, has been heard with an acclaimed debut solo album in 2014.
We hope ‘The Reflektor Tapes’ will become one rock music documentary to remember. It is currently screening for a very short period of time and in a very few places. Melbournians, you can go to the Carlton Nova tomorrow (05/10/2015) and on Wednesday (06/10/2015) at 8.45pm. Tickets here.
