Feist profiled in new documentary ‘Look What The Light Did Now’

Film to premiere at London's Raindance Film Festival next month

Feist is to be the subject of a new documentary set to make its debut at the Raindance Film Festival next month.

The Canadian singer-songwriter – whose full name is Leslie Feist – is trailed during the making and touring of her Grammy-nominated 2007 album ‘The Reminder’ in the film ‘Look What The Light Did Now’.

The documentary also reveals the intimate partnerships Feist had with the people she calls her “amplifiers”, including a video director who conducts fireworks, a pianist who guides the recording of the album, and other musical and visual collaborators such as Gonzales, Clea Minaker, Simone Rubi, Mary Rozzi and Patrick Daughters.


Throughout the film, the Broken Social Scene singer is documented across an array of scenery, stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, at a crumbling French mansion, in concert and being interviewed.

“When you’re making records and in the odd position of people actually hearing them, suddenly something hopefully simple is getting amplified in so many different ways,” Feist said. “This small thing can ripple out beyond recognition, so it becomes all the more important to have amplifiers who are people you trust. How do you find these people? Who are the amps?”

The film is due to be screened at the Raindance Film Festival in London on October 3.
