Joy Division

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

In 1976 four young men from ruined post-industrial Manchester, England went to see the Sex Pistols. They formed a band called Joy Division. It was 'a right laugh'. Three years later it was a matter of art, life and death. Thirty years later they are enjoying a larger audience and more influence than ever before with a profound legacy that resonates fiercely in today’s heavily careerist music industry and over-mediated pop culture. Featuring the unprecedented participation of the surviving band members, this documentary tells their story of beauty and loss in the city.
