Cert: 15 Year: 2008 Length: 93 mins
A perfect companion-piece to Control, shown at the Festival's February weekend. This documentary tells how a bunch of lads from Manchester, terribly derivative to start with, went into the studio for six months and emerged, with the help of producer Martin Hannett, as the definitive post-punk band Joy Division. Gee 'has a knack for non-fiction storytelling' (Stephanie Zacharek, salon.com). With access to all the key players – including the words of frontman Ian Curtis' widow Deborah as well as the presence of Curtis' then girlfriend – he provides a fascinating account of the band’s achievements, downfall, and how those left behind by Curtis’ suicide recovered to become New Order.
