Depeche Mode have announced their new documentary, Spirits in the Forest.
The film follows six fans who live all over the world as they travel to the band’s Berlin concert. The film is a mixture of fans’ stories shot in their hometowns along with footage from the concert. The title is a reference to both the band’s most recent album, Spirit, and tour, Global Spirit, and the venue the band played in Germany, the Waldbühne (“Forest Stage”).
Directed by longtime collaborator Anton Corbijn, the movie will be screened in theaters around the world November 21st. Tickets go on sale September 26th. Find more information on screenings here.
“I’m exceptionally proud to share this film and the powerful story that it tells,” Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan said in a statement. “It’s amazing to see the very real ways that music has impacted the lives of our fans.”
“In today’s world of turmoil and divisiveness, music really can be a force for good and can bring people together,” the group’s Martin Gore said.
