    The trailer for Daft Punk film Eden will make you want to be a DJ

    Daft Punk

    If you haven’t got your fill of cinematic robots from Ex Machina, take a look at the new trailer for Eden – a film portraying the human-after-all origins of electronic music’s premier android duo, Daft Punk.

    From award-winning French filmmaker Mia Hansen-Løve, Eden follows Paul, an aspiring DJ in the early Nineties French Garage scene, as he tries to make a name for himself. Inspired by fellow DJs Thomas and Guy-Man, who will go on to become musical icons, Paul becomes one of the pioneers of “French Touch”, a defining cultural movement in the French music scene.

    The film is a semi-autobiographical piece about the director’s older brother, Sven Hansen-Løve, who co-wrote the screenplay, and was a resident DJ at Queen Club in Paris in the Nineties.

    Daft Punk have supported the film by granting the filmmakers to use their music at a fraction of the usual cost, licensing three songs at £2,245 (€3,000) each, including the duo’s defining first single “Da Funk”.

    As well as playing at Sundance Film Festival, Eden is heading to UK cinemas in July.
