In 2011, at the iconic Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, The Chemical Brothers played a headline set in front of 50,000 fans which was captured on 21 cameras. Immersing us in the thick of a frenetic crowd, “Don’t Think” captures the synaesthetic barrage of sound, film and light and the transforming effect it has on its audience. Directed by Adam Smith, one of the show’s visual creators, we are taken on a magical realist psychedelic journey where we feel the show rather than merely watch it.
The global release in February 2012 has since reached legendary status. Unlike any other movie release “Don't Think” catalyzed rave-like cinema scenes compelling elated viewers across the world to abandon their cinema seats, dance in the aisles and chant along with the on-screen Fuji Rocks Festival crowd. The verdict from fans and critics has been unanimous - this was a one of a kind experience, definitely not to be missed.
One of the cinemas that led the charge was Arclight Hollywood where 450 fans shared an unforgettable and now well documented experience.
On Saturday, April 28th, Arclight will host a special late night screening of “Don’t Think” featuring an exclusive Q&A with the film’s director, Adam Smith.
