French quartet, Phoenix recruited director Antoine Wagner not only to direct their video for “Lisztomania”, but to also follow them around for a year and document the band’s meteoric rise to fame with their breakthrough album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The 52 minute documentary is appropriately called From a Mess to the Masses. (The title is taken from a distinguishable lyric from Wolfgang highlight, the aforementioned “Lisztomania”.)
On October 13th the film will premiere in France and Germany. No word on whether From a Mess will be broadcast in the US or UK. For now, you can watch the trailer.
