In 1976 four youngsters from ruined, post-industrial Manchester went to see the Sex Pistols. They then formed a band, Joy Division. Which three years later became a matter of art, life and death. Thirty years later, they still have a major influence on the international pop music scene. The film examines the band’s story as depicted through never-before-seen live performance footage, personal photos, period films and newly discovered audiotapes. With poignant narratives from Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and Stephen Morris, as well as accounts from Tony Wilson, iconic graphic artist Peter Saville, photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Belgian journalist Annik Honoré and others, the film is a fresh visual account of a whole cultural season.
