WATCH: Joy Division Reveal “I Remember Nothing” Visual
The fortieth anniversary of Unknown Pleasures launches a new film series.
Joy Division remembers. The legendary post-punk outfit is celebrating forty years of their pioneering 1979 debut, Unknown Pleasures—originally released on June 15, 1979—with a new film series. Visual coordinator Warren Jackson has commissioned ten new films, one for each track on the album, resulting in a “filmic re-imagining” of the music today.
The first of the films was revealed over the weekend: Icelandic duo Hörður Sveinsson and Helgi Jóhannsson’s take on “I Remember Nothing.” The clip features popular Icelandic actor Baltasar Breki Samper, best known to American viewers for his role on HBO’s Chernobyl.
