Over the past twenty years, the DJs behind Daft Punk—Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo—have changed the face of dance music in relative anonymity, performing their chart-topping hits in a series of infamously elaborate robot masks.
This documentary is the first to track their career from mid-90s Paris to their 2014 Grammy win. Featuring archival footage, interviews, and an all-star cast of collaborators including Kanye West, Michel Gondry, and Pharrell Williams.
