The Reflektor Tapes

"Our inclination is to tell stories…" One of the many documentaries premiering at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival is the music documentary The Reflektor Tapes, following the Canadian band Arcade Fire as the tour with incredibly unique and innovative shows. The doc "charts the band's creative journey as they lay foundations for the album in Jamaica, record in Montreal and play an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of Carnival, before bringing their breath-taking live show to packed arenas in Los Angeles and London." This looks like a wild and vivid and entrancing doc that captures the members of Arcade Fire in an intimate way. Whether you're already a fan or not, take a look below. I want to see this.

Here's the first festival trailer for Kahlil Joseph's doc The Reflektor Tapes, from TIFF's Trailer YouTube:

The Reflektor Tapes

From the TIFF 2015 guide: Award-winning filmmaker and music-video director Kahlil Joseph follows iconic Canadian band Arcade Fire as they complete their chart-topping 2013 album Reflektor and embark on the North American leg of their new world tour. The Reflektor Tapes is an exploration into the music and performances of the Canadian rock band, Arcade Fire. Founded in 2001 out of Montreal by friends and classmates Win Butler and Josh Deu, the band came to prominence back in 2004 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Funeral, and has won numerous awards, including the 2011 Grammy for Album of the Year. The doc will premiere up in Toronto first before hitting theaters. For more info go here.

Life can be quite magical as this trailer shows, a polar opposite to the Leith trailer which I also watched today here. Here's to more magic.

So cool! Arcade Fire popped at just the right time when I was in High School. So it carries a lot of currency for me personally. I can't wait to see this doc-o!
