Words: Dylan Murphy
“The film will be as wild as the band”.
Iconic UK group The Prodigy are subject of a new documentary set to tell the story of the electronic outfit from their origins to the peak of the powers.
The group announced the news in a post on Instagram stating:
“We are making a band documentary film…so fukin what??”
“After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole 9 … It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the peoples band — The Prodigy. Or simply — a story of brothers on a mission to make noise…to ignite the peoples souls and blow-up sound systems worldwide…that’s fukin what! This film will be made with the same integrity that our music is — uncompromising, raw and honest…This one’s for Keef!”
It’ll be the first major project since the passing of Keith Flint in 2019 and will be created by Pulse Films and directed by the group’s longterm collaborator Paul Dugdale.
Speaking on the documentary Paul Dugdale asserted, “The film will be as wild as the band”.
“Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster.”
There is no release date as of yet, but we’ll keep you updated with any news as it comes.
