The new Daft Punk documentary which is all set to air in June will also feature Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. The first documentary to be made about the French dance music duo, Daft Punk Unchained is produced by BBC.
Directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, and co-written by Delpierre and Marina Rozenman, it’ll trace the rise of the gods of the electro music and follow them all the way to their victory at the 2014 Grammy Awards, and will feature extracts from interviews with Daft Punk (archives from 1996 to 2013), rare documents and exclusive interviews with their friends and closest collaborators. The film will tell the epic story of the world’s most secretive duo while travelling from Los Angeles to New York as well as from Tokyo to Paris and plunging fans into the unique world of the Robots.
The guest list of the celebrities to be featured in the documentary swells with the likes of Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Michel Gondry, Paul Williams, Peter Lindbergh, Todd Edwards, Leiji Matsumoto, Tony Gardner, Pedro Winter and Pete Tong. Original music for the film was scored by Joseph Trapanese who has worked with Daft Punk on the score for Tron: Legacy.
BBC also reports that this documentary explores the 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. Daft Punk Unchained will air June 24 on France’s Canal+ channel.
