MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM is an immersive journey through the New York music
scene of the early 2000s, featuring never-before-seen footage of iconic
artists including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Strokes, Interpol
and LCD Soundsystem. Set against the backdrop of 9/11, the
film tells the story of how a new generation kick started a musical rebirth
for New York City that reverberated around the world.
Inspired by the book by Lizzy Goodman, the film is
constructed entirely from audio interviews and raw, contemporaneous
archive; including the personal archives of the featured artists and their
contemporaries, found footage, DV tapes unearthed from the shelves and
storage units of New York music fans, cultural artefacts of a time and
place on the cusp of seismic change.
The award-winning filmmakers behind “Shut Up And Play The Hits”
and “Blur: No Distance Left to Run” - Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace –
painstakingly investigated every possible archive source, bringing together
a treasure trove of interviews, live performances and home recordings to
perfectly capture the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of a pivotal time
and place in modern music history.
