The feature-length documentary Joy Division is written and directed by Grammy nominee Grant Gee (Radioheads Meeting People Is Easy, Gorillaz Demon Days Live) and co-written by acclaimed journalist and writer Jon Savage (Englands Dreaming: Anarchy, Sex Pistols, Punk Rock and Beyond).  The producers are Tom Astor and Tom Atencio of Hudson Productions Ltd., and Brown Owl Films Jacqui Edenbrow.


In 1976 four young men from ruined, post-industrial Manchester who went to see the Sex Pistols, founded Joy Division, the first band in the post-punk movement by later emphasizing not anger and energy, but mood and expression, pointing ahead to the rise of melancholy alternative music in the 80s, according to AllMusic.com.  The documentary explores the profound legacy of the bands collective musical genius and singular vision as well as their continued influence over thirty years.....


Featuring the unprecedented participation of the surviving band members (commonly known as New Order), the film examines the bands story as depicted through never-before-seen live performance footage, personal photos, period films and newly discovered audio tapes.  With poignant narratives from the surviving members of the band Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and Stephen Morris, as well as accounts from musician Genesis P. Orridge (of Throbbing Gristle), the late, legendary Factory Records owner Tony Wilson, iconic Factory Records graphic artist Peter Saville, photographer/ filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Annik Honor and others, the film is a fresh visual account of a time and place.  Joy Division chronicles a time of great social and political change in England and tells the untold story of four men who transcended economic and cultural barriers to produce an enduring musical legacy.

I saw Joy Division tonight at the AFI Dallas Film Festival. Really good turnout. From what I could tell, just about every seat was taken. Unfortuantly, no one from the movie was there to do a Q/A afterwards.

I really enjoyed the movie. It was really nice to see photos and footage I had never seen, including the Plan K footage and the What's On performance (with sound! ). The hypnosis tape was also interesting to listen to. I also liked how we got to see present day photos of Joy Division locations. Deborah and Natalie were missed; I would have loved to have heard their thoughts in the film.

I was lucky to have caught it at a premiere last year at SALFORD Film Festival. Followed by a Q&A with Peter Hook and Steve Morris.
Fantastic film,like it more than CONTROL. Was hoping it would have been out on DVD close to release of NEW ORDER Live In Glasgow DVD.

Some great footage in there,old Manchester & Salford, JD in colour, Ian smiling!, footage from PLAN K in Belgium.And the colour Malcolm Whitehead footage from Bowden Vale. When the audio recording of Barney hypnotising Ian came on, you could have heard a pin drop in the auditorium.

Sand some very entertaining anecdotes,one that springs to mind is Hooky describing the PLAN K crowd..

"They were all saying we are loving your music,you are so deep....well I think so because they were talking Belgian"

Sadly no Debbie or Natalie, but Annik Honore offers some insights of Ian.

Well put together,and was sad when it finished.
Felt a bit guilty at the end,when they showed NEW ORDER in Blackpool Empress Ballroom 2006,then superimposed NO with JD playing LWTUA. I was thinking "Get JD off I wanna see us at the front!!!"

Amsterdam screening with a Grant Gee Q&A May 31st:

http://www.365mag.com/index.php?pg=news&recnum=4655

(Amsterdam, NL) - 31st May sees the second edition of 'Behind the Skreen', a co-operation between K-Space and DJBroadcast focusing on music-related movies, arthouse films, and TV series. Each installment allows a notable guest from the industry to answer questions and react to comments. This edition will feature Grant Gee, director of Joy Division (the movie).

Grant Gee is best known for his films and documentaries about influential bands. His portfolio includes Meeting People Is Easy (about Radiohead) and a documentary about Oasis entitled 'Familiar to Millions'. The upcoming edition sees the director showing archive material and recent interviews with former Joy Division band members and relatives, thereby unfolding the story behind one of Manchester's most influential outfits. After the showcase of the movie, Grant Gee will respond to questions and comments from the audience, offering a unique opportunity to speak to a renowned director.

Joy Division, purveyors of post punk, caused a shockwave with the release of their 1979 debut album Unknown Pleasures and their impressive live gigs. Just before their American tour and the release of their second album in May 1980, lead singer Ian Curtis tragically committed suicide. The remaining band members picked up the pieces and continued as New Order, an outfit that would eventually pave the way for many new wave bands.

The documentary about the legendary band will be shown in an intimate setting. K-Swiss created a creative office and lifestyle showroom, to develop a platform for modern creativity. Music, art, design, movies and all other things creative found a safe haven in K-Space, perfectly translating the creative vision of K-Swiss.

Behind The Skreen organised by DJBroadcast and K-Space will be free to enter. Be sure to check it out on 31st May, 20:00, at the K-Space venue, Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 262, Amsterdam.
