Justice announce theatrical release of live film, ‘Iris’
Justice is an electronic duo who have always been as spectacular visually as they are musically. Their live shows can’t be contained within walls, so they often have to play arenas and giant festival stages.
As such, it’s no surprise their live film, Iris, couldn’t be contained in just one screening at SXSW. The French pair of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay just announced via their social media accounts that Iris will receive a theatrical release in their native home of France. With showings beginning on August 29, 2019, the announcement alluded to future screenings in other parts of the world with the quote:
“More countries to be announced. #irisbyjustice”
Iris debuted earlier this year at SXSW as a part of the 24 Beats Per Second screening. The film — directed by André Chemetoff and Armand Beraud — presents Justice’s Women Worldwide Tour in a whole new way. Filming the entire performance without an audience present, the two directors capture images and angles that can’t exist during a standard performance.
