Witness director Edgar Wright's long-awaited documentary about the pop and rock duo Sparks, including a live satellite Q&A with the filmmaker and Ron & Russell Mael of Sparks on Thurs 29 July.

How can one rock band be successful, underrated, hugely influential, and criminally overlooked all at the same time?

Take a musical odyssey through five weird and wonderful decades with brothers Ron & Russell Mael, celebrating the inspiring legacy of Sparks: your favourite band's favourite band. Features commentary from celebrity fans Flea, Jane Wiedlin, Beck, Jack Antonoff, Jason Schwartzman, Neil Gaiman, and more.

The preview screening on Thursday 29 July will be followed by a live satellite Q&A with Edgar Wright and Ron & Russell Mael of Sparks, broadcast from Sundance Film Festival: London 2021.
