Depeche Mode, along with Trafalgar Releasing, Sony Music Entertainment and BBH Entertainment, announce the upcoming release of the new feature-length documentary and concert film, SPIRITS in the Forest, coming to cinemas worldwide for a one-night event on Nov. 21. It will be screened in more than 2,400 cinemas, from Adelaide to Zagreb, in over 70 countries.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker and long-time artistic collaborator Anton Corbijn, the release of Depeche Mode: SPIRITS in the Forest follows the band’s 2017/2018 Global Spirit Tour, which saw them play to over 3 million fans at 115 shows around the world.
Diving into the stories of six special Depeche Mode fans, the film weaves together musical performances filmed at the final shows of the tour at Berlin’s famed Waldbühne (“Forest Stage”) with documentary footage filmed in the fans’ hometowns across the globe.
"I'm exceptionally proud to share this film and the powerful story that it tells," said Dave Gahan, of Depeche Mode. "It's amazing to see the very real ways that music has impacted the lives of our fans."
Added Martin Gore, "In today's world of turmoil and divisiveness, music really can be a force for good and can bring people together."
Screening tickets are on-sale from September 26 at spiritsintheforest.com, where fans can find the most up-to-date information regarding participating theaters and sign up for event alerts.
