“We think that DAFT PUNK manage to connect the past and future of music in very rare and interesting way, keeping their faces hidden and their business moves showed us that they know how to maneuver and reach their final goal. Also, because we are sure that Summer cinema on the beautiful Cres island will be fantastic location to see this film. We are sure that you will enjoy the music and film about the life and career of a duo who is already now part of pop culture history,”DORF Festival organisers say.
