Spirits in the Forest, a new documentary about Depeche Mode, is set to be screened in theaters worldwide on Nov. 21.
Directed by longtime Depeche Mode collaborator Anton Corbijn, the film will use the emotional stories of six of the group's fans who traveled to Depeche Mode's concert in Berlin. The fans' stories will be interwoven with concert footage of the show at Berlin’s famed Waldbühne (“Forest Stage”). The title of the film references both the band’s most recent album, Spirit, as well as the Berlin venue they played.
By weaving the fan stories with concert footage, the documentary reveals the way in which music builds communities and enables people to create connections despite their differences and diverse backgrounds.
“I’m exceptionally proud to share this film and the powerful story that it tells,” Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan said in a statement. “It’s amazing to see the very real ways that music has impacted the lives of our fans.”
“In today’s world of turmoil and divisiveness, music really can be a force for good and can bring people together,” the group’s Martin Gore said.
Tickets for the one-night only screenings go on sale Sept. 26 on spiritsintheforest.com.
