Life After Death From Above 1979 (West Coast premiere, filmmaker & band members in person!)

Schedules permitting, filmmaker Eva Michon, as well as DFA 1979 members Sebastien Grainger & Jesse Keeler, in person! Based on the strength of their hugely raucous live performances and the release of their seminal 2004 album “You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine”, Canadian duo Death From Above 1979 was propelled into the limelight — but as the band’s success grew internationally, the friendship between Jesse Keeler (bass) and Sebastien Grainger (drums) strained due to both constant travel and no buffer between them. As DFA 1979 grueling schedules and never-ending gigs all over the world, the two ended the band in 2006 before reaching potential stardom, right after the biggest tour of their careers. Life After Death From Above 1979 tells the story of the duo’s rise, break-up and resurrection from the dead in 2011, after five years of silence between the musicians, as they decide to reunite for one show: the legendary Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
Dir. Eva Michon, DCP, 2014, 73 min.
