The xx 'We See You - Berlin' (short film)
Published Nov 30, 2017After sharing a mini-doc focused on their London residency earlier this year, The xx have delivered the first instalment of a new series of short films.
Titled We See You - Berlin, the short film examines the relationship between The xx and their fans. Directed by Berlin-based filmmaker Sylvie Weber, the first instalment of the We See You series follows fans who attended the band's headlining set at Berlin's Lollapalooza festival in September.
Weber had this to say of the collaboration:
My process as a filmmaker speaks to a consistent desire within me to unveil the character within, I keep an aesthetic and cinematic visual in mind when on set, cautiously leading the protagonists while allowing them to slowly become more themselves on screen.
In the case of We See You, coming across truly engaged and earnest individuals was not difficult, the vulnerability that The xx expose in their music is the basis for their incredibly close connection to the fans themselves. I think we've managed to represent in these four stories the feeling of the many millions who are so profoundly affected by the harmonies of Romy, Oliver and Jamie.
