Daft Punk’s “Electroma” Film
Posted on June 14, 2011
Electroma is sort of an epic road movie odyssey from 2006 about two robots (played by the band members of Daft Punk) on a quest to become human. The music in the video isn’t made by the robot duo but rather Chopin, Brian Eno, Todd Rundgren, Sébastien Tellier, Curtis Mayfield, Linda Perhacs, Jackson C. Frank and Mathieu Tonetti. It’s also completely free of any dialogue. Sounds interesting? It sure is! Check it out below!
“Daft Punk’s Electroma is an odyssey of two robots who journey across a mythic American landscape of haunting, surreal beauty on a quest to become human. Their symbolic quest, which takes them from endless two lane highways to small idyllic towns to the arid desert, finds Daft Punk once again resisting conformity and developing new ways to highlight their inventive vision. A silent feature-length film that made its international debut at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, Electroma will interest Daft Punk fans and film enthusiasts alike. With its breathtaking cinematography, innovative filming techniques, and above all its underlying search for humanity within a dystopian environment, Daft Punk have delivered a film that finds a common thread with their previous work while exploring new horizons as directors of their first feature film.”
