Interpol bassist makes foray into film

Posted March 3rd, 2009 by eric

Interpol bassist, Carlos Dengler, will premier his debut film at the Anonymous Gallery in New York City beginning April 17th. The installation will run through May 5th. Dengler produced, stars in, and composed the original score for My Friends Told Me About You. Dengler teamed up with producer Todd Eckler, who co-produced Anton Corbijn’s Joy Division biopic, Control, last year. Dengler on the film: “Making My Friends Told Me About You was a chance to explore the narrative potential of sound and spectacle. The idea was to achieve the expression of film as a composition, a tone poem of carefully selected cinematic effects and gestures.” You can view the trailer or listen to the score. And, yes, Carlos is sporting his moustache in the film.
