The trailer for Scenes From the Suburbs, a 28-minute short created by director Spike Jonze (Where The Wild Things Are) with members of the recently Grammy winning Arcade Fire is now online. The film stars newcomers Sienna Blau, Sam Dillon, Zoe Graham, Zeke Jarmon, Paul Pluymen and Ashlin Williamson. The band executive produced the project with their manager Scott Rodger and the film’s concept art was created by fellow Canadian Marcel Dzama, the acclaimed illustrator who directed the animated promo for Arcade Fire’s Madison Square Garden concerts last summer. Lead singer Win Butler wrote the film with his brother William Butler. As for the plot of Jonze’s film, the Berlin festival program summary reads:

“I wish I could remember every little moment. But I can’t. Why do I only remember the moments that I do? I wonder what happens to the others.” A group of suburban youths. Back then, in the summer, so long ago. They couldn’t leave town because outside the country was at war and the military controlled life and all gateways. The teenagers wander aimlessly about town. Winter is a long way off. And love and longing and friendship still mean – everything.”
