BBC has announced the release of Daft Punk Unchained, the first documentary about the French electronic duo. The film was directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, and co-written by Delpierre and Marina Rozenman. It’ll trace the band’s rise 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.”
Though it doesn’t appear that any new interview footage with the notoriously secretive duo will be included, the guest list is almost enough to make up for it: Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Kanye West, Michel Gondry, Paul Williams, Peter Lindbergh, Todd Edwards, Leiji Matsumoto, Tony Gardner, Pedro Winter and Pete Tong will all appear in the film. Original music for the film was scored by Joseph Trapanese, who worked with the duo on the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
It’ll premiere on 6/24 at 8:50pm on France’s Canal+ channel, and will presumably debut elsewhere in the coming months.
