Spotlights flood across mirrors from centre of a futuristic floating structure, like stars whizzing past at light speed. Lighting dances in flashes across rotating LED panels. A golden glow rises up to the ceiling like we’re witnessing moments just after an eclipse, the sun overwhelming the eyes. And at the centre, are two figures casting a mysterious shadow – Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay of French electronic duo Justice – emitting their euphoric, signature electronic sound we’ve come to know and love over the last decade.

Their latest behemoth of a project is Iris: A Space Opera by Justice, a 60-minute visual film of their 2017-2018 live show, minus an audience, and focusing around the mega floating booth. Inspired by space film epics such as 2001: Space Odyssey and Close Encounters of a Third Kind, we caught up with Justice ahead of the release of Iris…

Saw it last night (9/10/2019) at Del Mar Cineopolis thetre.

It stars with a 15 or 20 minute documentary about themakign of it - I really thought it was boring. If it'd been AFTER the show - or if it'd been 6 minutes long I think ti would have been better.

The concert/music scenes:
This is exactly what I want to see when I see a live concert - no audience at all - just the music and the visual the band intends for you to see.

It's more of a Kraftwerk 3-D concert without the audience than it was Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii - and I thought it was a smart choice.

The sound system in my theater wasn't great - it was clear but it sounded like it was only in stereo.

The music is basically the World Wide Woman album (which are live versions of songs they do but mixed up/mashed up up.)

The lighting and camera movements could be great at times - it was rarely boring. The few animated sequences were good too.

I think the music portion was 50-60 minutes. (I bet they added the documentary up front to qualify for film festivals that have a certain time requirement.)

I think that when this is available to stream that a lot of people will dig it.
