Daft Punk documentary to debut in the US near the end of the year
I'm surprised that there hasn't been a documentary made about the robot duo known as Daft Punk, but later is better than never. Back in June, BBC premiered the documentary " Daft Punk Unchained" on French TV. It looks like folks in the US will get to see the story of Daft Punk by the end of the year. The film will feature collaborators Kanye West, Pharrell, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder and more talking about the impact of Daft Punk and their music.
Daft Punk Unchained is the first film about the pop culture phenomenon that is Daft Punk, the duo with 12 million albums sold worldwide and seven Grammy Awards. Throughout their career Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have always resisted compromise and the established codes of show business. They have remained determined to maintain control of every link in the chain of their creative process. In the era of globalisation and social networks, they rarely speak in public and neither do they show their faces on TV.
This documentary explores this unprecedented cultural revolution revealing a duo of artists on a permanent quest for creativity, independence and freedom. Between fiction and reality, magic and secret, future and reinvention, theatricality and humility, The Robots have built a unique world. The film combines rare archive footage as well as exclusive interviews with their closest collaborators who talk about their work with Daft Punk including Pharrell Williams, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers and Michel Gondry.
