This documentary looks at the British band Joy Division, who rose to prominence in the 1980s and have had an enormous cultural influence in the years since their demise. Using archival footage and interviews with those familiar with the band, and in the context of their rise in Manchester, filmmaker Grant Gee charts their career chronologically. Among those interviewed is Anton Corbijn, who made a biopic about Joy Division's lead singer, Ian Curtis, and photographed them during their heyday.
Director: Grant Gee
