Libertines film ‘There Are No Innocent Bystanders’ shown at CPH:DOX

Carl Barat and John Hassall give Q&A talk at Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival

Two of The Libertines appeared at an event in Denmark to promote There Are No Innocent Bystanders, a documentary about the band, earlier this week (November 9).

Carl Barat and John Hassall headed to the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival (CPH:DOX) to speak about the film, which is directed by NME photographer/filmmaker Roger Sargent.

Following a screening of the film, the trio appeared at a Q&A session where they recounted their experiences of filming the doc, which documents The Libertines‘ fractious reunion shows in 2010.

The film was was given its premier six months ago at London’s Troxy as part of the East End Film Festival. It is expected to be released on DVD at a later date – scroll down and click below to watch the trailer.

Speaking to NME at the time, Barat admitted the film was difficult to watch, adding:

For all I know it could totally demystify peoples’ impressions and everything that means a lot. But then again, it’s just the truth.

CPH:DOX, which kicked off on November 3 and is due to close tomorrow (13) is the largest documentary film festival in Scandinavia. Attendees this year have been given the chance to watch more than 200 documentary films from around the world.

Some 15 films have been selected for the international DOX:AWARD competition this year, with Charles Atlas’ Turning (Work In Progress) – a collaboration with Antony & The Johnsons – among the works in the running.

Singer Antony Hegarty and Atlas appeared at a closing gala yesterday (11) in Teater Bremen.
