About the film
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.” 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.
Wooozy Community Films are a new initiative started by Wooozy.cn, with the first screenings happening in Beijing and Shanghai November 2011. The impetus for these events comes from our knowledge of many groundbreaking music documentaries which music fans in Mainland China have found difficult to access. Therefore, the Wooozy Community Films fill that gap: music documentaries, subtitled in Chinese.
Every a few months, we will hold a screening in the cities. Not just movies, the film screenings will also include post-film discussions, cultural salons, appearances by special industry guests and more. We hope that the screenings will foster a sense of community and camaraderie between music fans in each city.
