The French robots we all know and love as Daft Punk will be having a documentary about their rise in dance music, and it’s set to premiere on June 24 on Canal+ in France – as announced by France’s BBC Worldwide. Daft Punk Unchained is the first ever documentary film on Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo‘s origins and how they came to be to create such a powerful duo.
The documentary was directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, and co-authored with Marina Rozenman as they take us on a little journey through incredible stories of this mysterious group. The video goes around the world and collects interviews by other artists who have worked with the duo. The list of artists include Skrillex, Pete Tong, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, and many more. The film will convey the quest the French duo had to go through as they entered an era of social media and globalization, how they coordinated the details of all their rare appearances and how they and how they remained so secretive throughout their whole career. There will also be an extended interview with Daft Punk’s former manager that is rumored to reveal some interesting details on how the two mystery men remained so obscured to the world.
