Arcade Fire Reportedly Being Treated to Documentary by Director Kahlil Joseph
While the details of the project are unclear, Arcade Fire Tube reports that Joseph told students at the California Institute of the Arts that he's working on a film for Arcade Fire. He apparently previewed a rough cut of the flick, adding that even Arcade Fire hadn't seen the footage yet, so this is still a work in progress.
Furthermore, Arcade Fire Tube points out that director of photography Lol Crawley's filmography mentions a Joseph-directed documentary called Arcade Fire: Reflektor Tapes. While we can't be sure this is the final title, it seems that this will be a documentary about the 2013 album Reflektor and/or the subsequent tour. The band apparently filmed lots of the shows on the tour.

Joseph said Arcade Fire themselves hadn't even seen the footage or his edit yet. The project very much a work in progress. Exciting.— Arcade Fire tube (@ArcadeFiretube) October 8, 2014
You'll be unsurprised to know that this won't be a regular 'live in Mehtown" tour dvd/bluray.— Arcade Fire tube (@ArcadeFiretube) October 8, 2014
