Published May 10, 2014Back in 2012, we reported that bands like My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Cocteau Twins would be examined via a shoegaze documentary called Beautiful Noise. Now, the film in done and is slated to premiere in the coming weeks.
Pitchfork notes that the world premiere will take place at the Seattle International Film Festival, where it will screen on May 31 and June 1. There will also be showings on June 8 and 9 at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival.
There's still no word as to when or if there will be any Canadian screenings, but we're guessing that the film will be made available before long.
Directed by Eric Green, Beautiful Noise explores the lasting influence of '80s and '90s shoegaze bands. Below, watch a trailer featuring interviews with members of My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Cocteau Twins, Ride, Seefeel, and A.R. Kane, plus Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) and Robert Smith (The Cure).
The film was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign.
