'Don’t Think' will screen in 20 cities on January 26, 2012
Don’t Think, a feature length film documenting The Chemical Brothers’ live show is set to premiere next year.
The film, directed by the dance act’s ‘long-term visuals collaborator’ Adam Smith, will screen in 20 cities across the world on January 26, 2012 at a set of advance fan screenings. Don’t Think was filmed at Japan’s Fuji Rock festival on July 31 of this year and will go on general release on February 1 (February 3 in the UK).
Filmed on 20 cameras, the movie shows ‘a fan’s eye view’ of the act’s live show as well as footage shot from the stage. Director Smith says of the film: “After 18 years of working on The Chemical Brothers live show we have finally captured it on film; you could almost say it’s 18 years in the making The aim was to create a different type of concert film for a different type of show.”
“I wanted to capture what it is like to experience the show from right in the middle of the crowd as well as showing and combining the visuals featured in the show with the footage we captured on this one night; to see how the music and visuals emotionally affect and connect with the audience.”
Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers says of Don’t Think: “This film is the closest I will ever get to being at a Chemical Brothers show… and yeah, it’s a beautiful experience.”
