acmi to screen australian premiere season of daft punk's electroma
The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, in association with Aztec International, are pleased to present the Australian Premiere cinema season of Daft Punk's Electroma (Rated G, France, 2006), on the big screen in ACMI Cinemas in glorious 35mm!
Debuting at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival Director's Fortnight, Electroma - directed by Daft Punk members Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo - is a surreal visual feast set against the stark Californian desert landscape.
Thomas Bangalter stated, "With this film, we had the same approach as when we started making music. Create without any rules or standards. Take a free approach to something new that you don't really know, and that you learn from scratch."
The French duo's previous directorial credits include the music videos for their singles Fresh, Robot Rock, and Technologic and film and video releases, D.A.F.T. - A Story about Dogs, Androids, Firemen and Tomatoes and Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem which were produced to complement the albums Homework and Discovery.
Daft Punk's Electroma will screen from June 7 - 10 at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne, and will then be released on DVD through Aztec International.
