Last week, Ian Curtis would’ve turned 64.
We therefore decided to celebrate his life and oeuvre by showing Anton Corbijn’s 2007 haunting depiction of the life of the artist and the band. The biopic of Ian Curtis, the enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23, is set in the North of England in the mid 70s, is also a grim yet beautiful hindsight of the northern working class, and a touching insight on the young artist, that now, long after his passing, is the icon of a cult following, and an immense influence on a myriad of bands to this day.
Regarded as a polarising voice of Manchester’s post punk scene, as well as a true poet, it’s hard to contest that his touch is still found many years later, in bands the likes of The Drums, Bauhaus, Interpol, The National and undoubtedly more recently, irish band Fontaines D.C.
