Depeche Mode: SPiRiTS in the Forest set “the new gold standard for concert films,”according to Forbes. Re-envisioning the very concept of a music documentary, director and longtime Depeche Mode collaborator Anton Corbijn focused the narrative on six super fans from different regions of the globe. The film zeroes in on their lives – all extremely different save for their love of Depeche Mode’s music and the way that music has shaped their experiences – intercut with the final Berlin show, held at the iconic Waldbühne (“Forest Stage”)on the record-breaking two-year Global Spirit Tourin 2018, which saw them play to over 3 million fans at 115 shows around the world. The music, including several of Depeche Mode’s biggest hits, and the Spirits’ stories entwine seamlessly, illuminating the enduring power of Depeche Mode and the power music has to cross boundaries and borders and ultimately unite us.
One of the strongest performing event cinema releases, Depeche Mode: SPiRiTS in the Forestinitially opened on 3,000 screens across nearly 80 countries last November.
