Shut Up And Play The Hits, a film documenting LCD Soundsystem's last show at New York's Madison Square Garden in April 2011, is set to screen at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

Scroll down to watch the trailer for the film, which was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace. "If it's a funeral… let's have the best funeral ever," reads the film’s tagline.

The film will premiere on January 22 at the US film festival. The band's former frontman, James Murphy, also appears as an 'ageing Brooklyn hipster' in new film The Comedy, which will also screen at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (January 19-29, 2012) in Utah.

The film was directed by Rick Alverson and stars Tim Heidecker as a man who "whiles away his days with a group of ageing Brooklyn hipsters, engaging in acts of recreational cruelty and pacified boredom," reports Pitchfork.

Co-produced by the independent record label Jagjaguwar, the film is pitched as: "A scathing look at the white male on the verge of collapse, Rick Alverson’s carefully observed portrait provokes and disorients; a cautionary fable for the autumn of the American Era."
