Wednesday, May 26, 2010 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

French duo Zombie Zombie have gained worldwide attention since their debut album A Land For Renegades in 2008, both as a formidable live band and as music producers of the highest calibre. Through their use of vintage analogue synthesizers the band create intensely atmospheric music that has oft drawn comparison with the soundtracks of John Carpenter, the scores by Goblin for the films of Dario Argento and, notably, Gil Melle's soundtrack for The Andromeda Strain.

Such references would not seem to lead obviously to working on Battleship Potemkin, yet the band's passionate re-imagining of Eisenstein's silent classic has been heralded as a triumph since its debut performance in Paris at the end of 2009. The BFI are delighted to present the UK Premiere of this re-score.
