On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden.
LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to
disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its
generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band
would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of
its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did
just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and
grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure
craft" and TIME magazine
lamenting "we may never dance again." SHUT UP AND PLAY THE
HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life
time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he
navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal
and professional ramifications of his decision.
SHUT UP AND PLAY
THE HITS was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and
produced by Lucas Ochoa and Thomas Benski of Pulse Films (the same
team that directed and produced the Grammy-nominated Blur
documentary, NO DISTANCE
LEFT TO RUN) and James Murphy. The film's executive producers
are Christine Vachon (I'M NOT THERE, FAR FROM HEAVEN, BOYS DON'T
CRY, ONE HOUR PHOTO, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, etc.), former LCD
manager Keith Wood and The Creators Project.
SHUT UP AND PLAY
THE HITS will receive its debut screening at this year's
Sundance film festival.
Sam Pilling has delivered a beautifully dark, humorous and twisted music video for Two Door Cinema Club’s new single ‘Handshake’.

entirely on location in Miami, Florida.
Pulse Films is proud to announce a major theatrical music documentary currently in production on one of the biggest boy bands ever, Backstreet Boys, and their tumultuous journey from child stars to fully-grown boy band, which will be finished by Fall 2013.
