Depeche Mode 101

Depeche Mode 101

Concert film legend D. A. Pennebaker joins forces with directors Chris Hegedus and David Dawkins to film English industrial pop royalty Depeche Mode, here in their imperial four-piece formation, during their grueling nine-month “Music for the Masses” American tour. The filmmakers also track a group of fans as they cross the country on the band’s trail. Mixing intimate backstage moments with the group and thundering live performances, 101 climaxes with the group’s triumphant set at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl on June 18, 1988.

DIRECTED BY: David Dawkins, Chris Hegedus, D. A. Pennebaker. WITH: Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher, Alan Wilder. 1989. 120 min. USA. Color. English. Rated R. 4K DCP.
