Pulse Films & Director Kahlil Joseph Unleash ‘Arcade Fire: The Reflektor Tapes’ Feature Film

This autumn the Grammy award-winning band releases its first feature film coming to cinemas around the world from September 24th

The Reflektor Tapes is directed by 2013 Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Films winner Kahlil Joseph, and produced by award-winning studio Pulse Films (20,000 Days on Earth, Shut Up And Play The Hits) and What Matters Most.

It is a film quite unlike any other; an authentic cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history.



The release will be brought to screens by leading Event Cinema distributor Arts Alliance. Screening for a short time only, it bucks traditional film rollout convention, creating a unique cinema event to be shared by audiences around the world.

The Reflektor Tapes is an insight into the making of Arcade Fire’s critically acclaimed, international #1 album Reflektor. The film recontextualises the album experience, transporting the viewer into a kaleidoscopic sonic and visual landscape.

It charts the band’s creative journey as it lays foundations for the album in Jamaica, commence recording sessions in Montreal and play an impromptu gig at a Haitian hotel on the first night of Carnival, before bringing their breath-taking live show to packed arenas in Los Angeles and London.

Audiences will relive stunning concerts from the Reflektor tour, re-envisioned in true cinema high definition and surround sound. The film will also offer a rare opportunity for fans to delve beneath the surface and get closer to the band themselves. With Arcade Fire granting previously unprecedented access to Joseph, The Reflektor Tapes fluidly blends in never before seen personal footage, including interviews, documentation of the recording process and moments captured by the band themselves, to dazzling effect.

Arcade Fire said of the film: “There were parts of the Reflektor tour where I think we, Arcade Fire, came the closest in our careers to putting on stage what we imagined in our heads. We were insanely lucky to have Kahlil Joseph documenting from the very beginning."

In addition to showcasing music from Reflektor and other albums in Arcade Fire’s storied back catalogue, The Reflektor Tapes will also give viewers a chance to hear an unreleased track for the first time and features an exclusive 20 minutes of unseen footage, filmed only for cinema audiences.
