Arcade Fire Documentary to Bow in Theaters This Fall.

Arcade Fire has been largely quiet in 2015 after a touring non-stop in 2013-14 in support of their fourth album “Reflektor.” But this fall, the Canadian band will release a documentary called “The Reflektor Tapes,” set to hit theaters Sept. 24.Arcade Fire’s Reflektor lives on: The band announced Wednesday that they’ll release a film titled The Reflektor Tapes directed by Kahlil Joseph this fall. Although they didn’t provide many details about the film, it will likely include plenty of music from their most recent album (and the movie’s namesake), Reflektor.

The eight minute clip is a compilation of concert footage as well as memorable scenes from the band’s time in Haiti, around the time they played the 2014 Haitian Carnival. The pic “will be a unique cinematic experience, meeting at the crossroads of documentary, music, art and personal history,” according to a release. Along with the announcement, they also released a video set to Reflektor’s “Porno” featuring footage of live performances, seemingly un-staged parades and images of a man wearing a mask made of mirrors.

Utilizing two overlapping frames for much of the video, Joseph creates a dizzying effect as the multiple layers of footage guide viewers through the streets of Haiti. Taking in locations like Jamaica, Montreal and Haiti, the film also offers exclusive concert footage that will put fans in the front row of some of the group’s biggest shows yet. The last half of the clip shows more rock-doc oriented footage, including fans running to get close to the stage and a concert attendee dressed in mirrors.
