Mercury Prize winners and the Grammy-nominated Arctic Monkeys are set to release ‘Arctic Monkeys at The Apollo’ on DVD/CD on May 5th, 2009 via Warp Films Productions.
The 76-minute film documents the last performance of the band’s acclaimed 2007 world tour, which was at the venerable Manchester Apollo Theatre. Captured on super 16mm film, ‘Arctic Monkeys at The Apollo’ is a cinematic feast with impressive, intuitive and confidently held master shots – a film that invites the audience to immerse themselves in the style and force of the British phenoms as they deliver an energetic and impressive live performance in front of thousands of ecstatic fans. Directed by regular Warp Films music video director Richard Ayoade, captured exquisitely on film by director of photography Danny Cohen (This is England), edited by Nick Fenton (Sigur Ros documentary Heima), and produced by Diarmid Scrimshaw, this is the first ever live Arctic Monkeys performance captured on film.
