Sky Arts will screen a new feature-length documentary about New Order on September 22 at 9pm.
Directed by Mike Christie, New Order: Decades follows the band as they prepare for their 2017 So It Goes… concerts at the Manchester International Festival, where they reimagined their back catalogue for a 12-piece synthesiser orchestra.
According to the press release, “New Order: Decades offers a rare chance to enter the band’s private world, understand the visual philosophy of their aesthetic and design, and witness their collaborative, creative processes first-hand.”
