The BBC today revealed more details about its forthcoming Daft Punk documentary which it has made alongside French TV station Canal+.
“From Los Angeles to New York, from Tokyo to Paris, the film plunges us into the unique world of the Robots, with the participation of 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,” explains the press release.
“Produced by BBC Worldwide France with Jean-Louis Blot as Executive Producer and Patrice Gellé as Producer, “Daft Punk Unchained” recounts the quest for liberty and independence of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. In an era of globalisation and the expansion of social media, the two Parisian musicians, DJs / producers have refused to show their own faces. They orchestrate every detail of their rare appearances.”
The documentary’s theme music – which has been created specially for the film – was composed and arranged by Joseph Trapanese, who collaborated with Daft Punk on the duo’s Tron:Legacy score.
Daft Punk Unchained will premiered on 24 June at 8:50pm on Canal+ in France.
