Daft Punk Portrayed in Fictional Film Eden
Eden is a film directed by Mia Hansen-Løve. It focuses on the rise of electronic music in France, and it stars Greta Gerwig. The film features portrayals of several real world DJs, most prominently Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, aka Daft Punk.
Today, a trailer for the film has been shared. It includes clips featuring Daft Punk as well as a snippet of “One More Time”; watch it below.
The film premieres this Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival. According to TIFF, the film also features music from Frankie Knuckles. Here’s their description:
Paul (Félix de Givry) is a teenager in the underground dance music scene of early-nineties Paris. Raves dominate, but he’s drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house scene. He and a friend form a DJ duo called—with unfathomable layers of irony—Cheers. Two of their friends form a group with a similarly odd name: Daft Punk. These young artists plunge into the life, building their following one set at a time, dropping out of daytime society to form a community based on the high of the ceaseless beats and bass. There are drugs. There is sex. Paul hooks up with an American in Paris, played by the spirited Greta Gerwig (also appearing at the Festival in The Humbling), but that may be fleeting.
