Film Details

UK Premiere

Short Synopsis:

This poetic film follows the life of recording artist Feist’s Grammy-nominated album “The Reminder”, illuminating her intimate creative partnerships and the synergy between music and visual arts.

Review:

Canada has one of the most exciting indie rock scenes in the world, shared by what seems to be an entire generation of musical and visual artistic collaborators. In Look At What The Light Did Now we get a colourful insight into this burgeoning bohemian movement, following Leslie Feist, member of Broken Social Scene, in her solo outing known simply as Feist. We are invited into the band's fascinating and intimate recording sessions and follow the creative process right through to their sold-out arena concerts.

 

While recording, Leslie and the band base themselves in a large old mansion, making use their entire environment to saturate their album with context, narrative and sonic depth. Meanwhile the myriad of collaborating visual artists set to work, turning Feist's sound into poetic, live light performances, music videos and album covers. This is one of those special music documentaries that has nothing to do with band politics or life stories, instead it focuses purely on the creativity and passion that goes into giving the audience a memorable experience. Watching Feist, the band and collaborators, you can't help but feel you are witnessing something magical.

 

The film itself is something remarkable in its own right. Directed by Anthony Seck, who himself comes from a musical background, Look At What The Light Did Now combines incredible sound production with wonderfully visceral super 8mm footage. The live footage, edited exquisitely together with music videos and artists at work, translates Feist's gigs into a whole new kind of performance, just for the big screen.
