New Order
Mike Christie to direct the new Sky Arts production...

New Order are set to be the subject of a lengthy new documentary for Sky Arts.

The announcement comes almost exactly 40 years after Joy Division made their first television appearance, and finds the band interacting with their history in a curious way.

Last year New Order worked alongside artist Liam Gillick and a 12-piece synthesiser orchestra for the acclaimed collaboration So It Goes.. during Manchester International Festival 2017.

Forced to de-construct their own history, the performance is used as a jumping off point for Mike Christie's new documentary New Order: Decades.

Featuring interviews with the band members and associates such as designer Peter Saville, the feature length film contains a multitude of live performances.

New Order: Decades will be broadcast on September 22nd on Sky Arts.
