Arcade Fire Filming Haitian Performances for Possible DVD Release

Arcade Fire Filming Haitian Performances for Possible DVD Release
Today (March 14), Arcade Fire released a new trailer for their Spike Jonze-directed film, Scenes from the Suburbs. Although it didn't specify a release date, it promised that a DVD would be coming soon. Now, we've received word of another Arcade Fire feature that will be arriving on DVD in the coming months.

FACT reports that Arcade Fire recently headed to Haiti for a number of performances with Haitian musicians. They're being joined by UK director/photographer Leah Gordon, who specializes in shooting images of Haiti. Gordon will be filming the visit, and the results are expected to be released on DVD later this year.

Haiti has always been close to Arcade Fire's heart. Band founder Régine Chassagne is of Haitian descent, and the group's 2004 debut, Funeral, included a track called "Haiti." Also, last year, the band promised to match $1 million in donations after the nation was struck by a devastating earthquake.
