Blur: No Distance Left to Run

In doc|BOOK on December 6, 2009 at 6:42 pm

Blur are set to return in 2010 with a reunion documentary, No Distance Left to Run, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace.

The documentary is a picture of reconciling friendship and Englishness, following the band’s path from the beginning to their headline appearance at Glastonbury 2009.

No Distance Left to Run features rehearsal and performance footage from 2009, as well as archive clips from years before.  You can also expect to see interviews, backstage scenes and Damion Albarn stage dives.

Although Blur re-united during Spring 2009, their last gig this July was decided to be the last.  There are no further plans to play together again.

No Distance Left To Run is showing at cinemas in January 2010
