Photographer Roger Sargent and The Libertines share the 15-minute short visual history that was made for their Hyde Park summer shows

Before The Libertines walk onstage at London’s Hyde Park this summer, playing on the giant screens was a 15-minute short made by Roger Sargent – the photographer who documented the rise and impressive implosion of the group in the early-mid 2000s. The film – a visual history of the band – featured Sargent’s photographs (many of which were shot for NME) and unheard interviews from his 2010 documentary There Are No Innocent Bystanders, plus footage from The Libertines Freedom gig in Chatham at the Tap ’n’ Tin in 2003.

If you weren’t there, because the thought of watching a gig at Hyde Park makes you physically ill, or otherwise, here is that video.dot
