Soundwatch Berlin Music Film Festival

Festival Opening

Berlin premiere of New Order: Decades (Director: Mike Christie, GB 2018)

Part concert, part documentary, this film follows the band’s preparations in the re-staging of their acclaimed collaboration So It Goes with the visual artist Liam Gillick and the 12-piece synthesizer orchestra that spectacularly captured the headlines during Manchester International Festival 2017. Through personal interviews with the band members and close collaborators including Gillick and art director Peter Saville New Order: Decades offers a rare chance to enter the band's private world, understand the visual philosophy of their aesthetic and design, and witness their collaborative, creative processes first hand. The full-length New Order and Joy Division song performances featured in the film serve as a perfect cross section of the musical journey the band have undertaken in their incredible career over the last four decades, and the perfect soundtrack to this very special film.

At the following after-show-party there will be a DJ set by Mark Reeder.
