Duran Duran: Unstaged
For one night only Duran Duran took the stage in Los Angeles with a historical performance that included some of the most celebrated guests in music history. And it’s directed by David Lynch… whoa.
The iconic British rock band Duran Duran will take over US movie theaters on Wednesday, September 10th for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged. This movie showcases the band’s concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, which was part of the American Express Unstaged concert series that celebrated the band’s All You Need Is Now album and world tour. Screenvision in alliance with Phase 4 Films will screen the film in over 300 locations.
The film was directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive) as part of the American Express Unstaged. Known for his unique cinematic style that masterfully blends extraordinary imagery and sound design, Lynch has captured the band’s performance in a ground-breaking, creative way that will provide fans with a visually stunning in-theater viewing experience. When it was originally filmed, the director layered images that he had created in advance of the show (live action, animation, special effects, etc.) on top of the band’s performance footage as it was being filmed live. The technique, created an ocular event unlike anything ever seen before. Special guests include Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Beth Ditto (Gossip), Kelis and long-time collaborator, Mark Ronson.
Duran Duran: Unstaged
directed by David Lynch in English
For one night only Duran Duran took the stage in Los Angeles with a historical performance that included some of the most celebrated guests in music history.
The band performs 18 songs, including “Hungry Like the Wolf”, “A View to Kill”, “Ordinary World” and “Rio.” Also appearing are Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, The Gossip’s Beth Ditto, Mark Ronson and Kelis. Directed with a kinetic visual intensity that makes it easily recognizable as a David Lynch creation, Duran Duran: Unstaged is quite unlike any concert-doc experience ever put on screen. Duran Duran: Unstaged is a dream collaboration that presents the band’s energy and Lynch’s playful interventions on the grand scale they so uniquely merit.
