Kanye, Pharrell, Appear In Daft Punk Doco Trailer, Helmets Almost Come Off

The music industry’s most elusive duo will become “unchained” (not “unmasked”, smdh) in a landmark documentary helmed by the BBC on Daft Punk‘s oeuvre, influence and media-reticent history—“Daft Punk Unchained”—as revealed by the film’s first worldwide trailer released today.

Director Hervé Martin Delpierre has taken the plunge in making the first documentary of its kind, delving into the work of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – featuring interviews from Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Paul Williams, Michel Gondry and Nile Rodgers. 

While the film doesn’t feature any new footage or interviews from Daft Punk themselves, the documentary uncovers rare radio archives, footage and exclusive interviews with friends of the duo – making for the biggest insight into Daft Punk since their fledgling beginnings. According to The Guardian, the doco offers a rare look into the duo’s dynamic, relationship with labels and the secrecy behind its iconic 2010 Coachella show. 

“Daft Punk Unchained” already premiered exlusively in France in June this year; its global release is yet to be defined beyond “2015“.
