Having conquered the album charts and the festival circuit, Wolf Alice are now mounting an assault on the film world as stars of Michael Winterbottom’s new movie ‘On The Road’. Filmed on their recent UK tour, it follows the band’s movements and the budding relationship between two fictional members of their team. The movie premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last night (October 9), and Ellie and co were in attendance.
On The Road was directed by Michael Winterbottom (The Trip, 24 Hour Party People) who said he came up with the idea of making a tour film after speaking with the band Ash in the ’90s.
The film captures the day-to-day life of a band on tour, from the long hours spent travelling to killing time between soundcheck, interviews and performing.
On The Road premiered as part of the BFI London Film Festival, but won’t see a general release until 2017.
