Arcade Fire release their first feature film, The Reflektor Tapes, in theaters September 23 for a limited time.

Arcade Fire’s fourth album Reflektor is a sprawling, 75 minute double album featuring James Murphy, Jonathan Ross, voodoo, disco, dub reggae, bobbleheads and disco balls. To debunk, or perhaps further demystify the album released in 2013, the Canadian group have created The Reflektor Tapes, a film that arrives in cinemas in America on 23rd September and worldwide on 24th September

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) and What Matters Most, it is a hybrid of documentary, music and art which explores the making of Reflektor. Using personal footage and interviews tracing back to its initial beginnings in Jamaica, to the recording sessions in Montreal and an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of carnival, the film also takes a peek behind the curtain of their tour, capturing footage from their arena dates in Los Angeles and London.

Arcade Fire said of the film: “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.”
