The Prodigy announce first ever feature-length documentary

Despite rarely letting their story be told on film, The Prodigy have now announced their plans for their first ever feature-length documentary.

Produced by Pulse Films and directed by Paul Dugdale, best known for his work with Adele, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Ed Sheehan, and Paul McCartney, the new film aims to tell the complete story of their incredible legacy, from forming in the late 80s rave scene to the tragic passing of iconic member Keith Flint in 2019.

Speaking about the documentary, The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett and Maxim said “WE ARE MAKING A BAND DOCUMENTARY FILM…SO FUKIN WHAT??
AFTER THE DEVASTATING PASSING OF OUR BROTHER KEEF IN 2019, THE TIME FEELS RIGHT FOR US TO TELL THE STORY OF OUR BAND, ALL OF IT, THE WHOLE 9 … ITS A STORY OF THE CHAOTIC AND TROUBLED JOURNEY OF OUR GANG, OUR BAND, THE PEOPLES BAND - THE PRODIGY.

"OR SIMPLY - A STORY OF BROTHERS ON A MISSION TO MAKE NOISE…TO IGNITE THE PEOPLES SOULS AND BLOW-UP SOUND SYSTEMS WORLDWIDE…THATS FUKIN WHAT! THIS FILM WILL BE MADE WITH THE SAME INTEGRITY THAT OUR MUSIC IS - UNCOMPROMISING, RAW AND HONEST…

"THIS ONE’S FOR KEEF!”

While director Paul Dugdale added, “The film will be as wild as the band. Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster”

Sam Bridger, Head of Music Films at Pulse Films commented, “The Prodigy are the most iconic British electronic band of their generation, a group who single-handedly altered the course of popular music. Our ethos at Pulse Films in the music documentary space has always been to tell unique stories about iconic artists in new and disruptive ways. Partnering with The Prodigy and their long-time directing collaborator Paul Dugdale enables us to continue that tradition and create a film that reflects the heart, sheer imagination and danger of The Prodigy."
