The very first documentary on the world’s most secretive robots is now upon us. The compelling story of two uncompromising artists, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk is now revealed through the first independent film, Daft Punk Unchained. Directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, the documentary features friends and collaborators of the duo, including Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Kanye West, Michel Gondry, Paul Williams, Peter Lindbergh, Leiji Matsumoto and Pete Tong.
The film depicts the astonishing career of the iconic duo and how they have remained determined to control every bit of creativity in their work over the years. Despite their mounting success as artists, Daft Punk continues to refuse to show their faces, maintaining their appearance as robots. The film highlights keys moments in the robot’s lives, including their first school band in Paris to their historic concert at Coachella festival in 2006 and their spectacular triumph at the 2014 Grammy Awards for the album « Random Access Memories ».
While the movie has already premiered on French television, we are now given the trailer to the English version here:
