It's looks bit strange and maybe fake however is interesting. See here:

Description:
Blixa Bargeld attends the only concert of Joy Division in (West) Berlin — 4 months before Ian Curtis’ death — at the Kant Kino, 21st January 1980.

Yeah it's from a movie about Berlin punk and post-punk scene. Some of the footages are real (like Nick Cave room in Berlin) but most was shot on film nowadays so that it would look like archives footages.
That's what I understood even though the credits in the movies are not really clear.

You could ask Mark Reeder (Factory's man in Berlin) who provided a lot of the film archive footage (Lust and Sound in West Berlin). He also organised the JD Kant Kino concert. By his account it wasn't a great night.

By a strange twist of fate I am going to see Einsturzende Neubauten next week.

The New Order video to "Singularity" is made from footage of this film:

Here's few movie snapshots at the moment when talking about Kant Kino concert:

Apparently, this film is made using the archived Mark Reeder's 8mm films. Actually it looks pretty authentic and Blixa looks young in that moment. It's not clear whether does he shot Joy Division on stage or he captured only Blixa at audience and the opening of the doors.

Could somebody contacting with Mark to ask him about it?

I finally saw the film ("B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989") and it's bloody amazing [eek]

One of the girls in Malaria! talks about working in a record store and how everyone wanted Joy Division and it made her sick of them ... [nono]
