This month the East End Film Festival celebrates its ten year anniversary with a premiere viewing of Libertines documentary There Are No Innocent Bystanders.

The movie – made by music photographer Roger Sargent – will be screened at The Troxy, Limehouse, London, on April 27 2011, followed by a party in the art deco theatre.

Sargent’s debut feature film, There Are No Innocent Bystanders documents the year between the band announcing their 2010 Reading & Leeds Festival reunion shows and the events of that August weekend. And if one man is patient enough to make a movie of the super flaky Libertines it’s Sargent – he’s shot the band photographically since day one. It’s how he managed to get such close access to the band for this film too, spending a day with Peter Doherty in Paris, being given an east end tour by Carl Barat and even managing to profile Gary Powell and John Hassall separately, which almost never happens.
