Before he was an acclaimed filmmaker, Anton Corbijn was the king of cool, but you might not have known it. He started his career as a photographer, where he captured a diverse array of artists such as Joy Division, Depeche Mode, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Björk, Elvis Costello, Morrissey and more in iconic pictures. He then moved to music videos where again, his inventive eye made his name a brand, and he still dabbles in that world today, most recently helming “Reflektor” for Arcade Fire (and you can see his recently released director’s cut of Nirvana‘s “Heart Shaped Box” right here). But now, the camera is getting turned on Corbijn himself.
He’s the subject of the forthcoming documentary “Anton Corbijn Inside Out,” and it’s one that fans of his work will want to track down. Directed by Klaartje Quirijns, it’s a film that tracks both his life and work, giving us a better understanding of the man behind the images. And it’s a winner, with our own Jessica Kiang writing out of Berlin last year that it’s “a thoughtful film that is as much an homage to the creative process as it is a tribute to a man.”
The film arrives on VOD via your favorite out let on November 19th. Watch below.
