A new documentary film about Adam Ant, associate produced by Jamie Reynolds of Klaxons, premiered last night (September 11) at the BFI Southbank.

Scroll down to watch a trailer for The Blueblack Hussar, which was directed by Jack Bond. The film also features Mark Ronson as well as Reynolds. The film documents the 1980s popstar's first tour in 15 years. A press release for the movie states: "Director Jack Bond captures pop star Adam Ant's extraordinary and brave come-back after years of mental health problems... The film includes electrifying live performances, starting at London's 100 Club and culminating at Hyde Park, before an audience of 55,000." For more information, visit the BFI's official website.

In attendance at last night's screening were director Jack Bond, Charlotte Rampling, Mark Ronson and Jamie Reynolds. Speaking to The Daily Star about the film in 2011, Reynolds said: "The Adam Ant project is my first step into the film business. I've got no experience of making films but I really wanted to get involved in it and I may do more."

Adam Ant self-released his sixth album 'Adam Ant Is the BlueBlack Hussar in Marrying the Gunner's Daughter' on his own Blueblack Hussar Records label earlier this year.
