Released by late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch’s Oscilloscope Laboratories, this documentary follows LCD Soundsystem founder James Murphy in the weeks preceding his band’s final show at New York’s Madison Square Gardens in 2011. Displaying the same self-deprecating humour found in the band’s best songs, 40-year-old Murphy ponders the wisdom of ending the career of his DFA punk-disco pioneers at their commercial peak, with a hometown show in front of their biggest ever audience. The film is directed by Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern, best known for their Blur film No Distance Left to Run. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with members of the band and film crew, on a pre-recorded video interview.
