LoudQUIETloud : A FILM ABOUT THE PIXIES DIRECTED BY STEVEN CANTOR & MATTHEW GALKIN feat. Charles Thompson (guitar/vocals) Kim Deal (bass/vocals) Joey Santiago (guitar) David Lovering (drums) Original Score by Daniel Lanois
In the history of modern American music there are few bands like the Pixies. Theirs was an unparalleled musical path, influencing countless others despite modest financial success. In 1992, their chief songwriter and vocalist Black Francis announced his intention to quit via a blunt facsimile. That it seemed, was that.
Then to the amazement of everyone, the Pixies reunited in 2004. loudQUIETloud is the story of this unforeseen plot twist - a deeply compelling portrait of four band members and their difficult, tense and ultimately triumphant return. From the first rehearsal after their reunion to the final bow nearly one year later, the press shy Pixies granted unprecedented access to NY directors Steven Cantor & Matthew Galkin for the duration of their 04/05 tours. The result is an insiders perspective of the Pixies, some of the fastest selling shows of all time and a fascinating document of the modern touring band. The Pixies relationships with each other, their relationships with their family and their fans are brought sharply into focus alongside striking concert footage. From the loud emotional highs of performing to renewed tensions between personnel, the bands combustible stage dynamic is laid bare. Featuring the seminal "Where Is My Mind," "Gouge Away," "Hey" and many more, Plexi is proud to present loudQUIETloud.
