Universal Pictures and Dogwoof have debuted the trailer for the music documentary ‘Meet Me in the Bathroom’.
The doc is an immersive journey through the New York music scene of the early 2000s, featuring never-before-seen footage of iconic artists including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, Interpol and LCD Soundsystem. Set against the backdrop of 9/11, the film tells the story of how a new generation kick-started a musical rebirth for New York City that reverberated around the world.
Inspired by the book by Lizzy Goodman, the film is constructed entirely from audio interviews and raw, contemporaneous archives; including the personal archives of the featured artists and their contemporaries, found footage, DV tapes unearthed from the shelves and storage units of New York music fans, cultural artefacts of a time and place on the cusp of seismic change.
The award-winning filmmakers behind “Shut Up And Play The Hits” and “Blur: No Distance Left to Run” – Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace – painstakingly investigated every possible archive source, bringing together a treasure trove of interviews, live performances and home recordings to perfectly capture the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of a pivotal time and place in modern music history.

The doc is in cinemas from March 10th.
