Spawning a thousand copyists but combusting in 2004 before they could reach their true potential, The Libertines reformed in 2010 with performances at the Reading and Leeds festivals. Seargent's all-access documentary follows this rather unexpected reunion, going behind the tabloid headlines to to give viewers unrivalled access to the love, laughter, passion and power of a band which united and inspired a generation. Often described as the UK's most important music photographer and photojournalist; Roger Sargent has approached The Libertines' tale with a unique approach, profilling each band member individually and collectively in a way that has never been done before.
The 2011 East End Film Festival takes place between Wednesday 27th April and Monday 2nd May, with 'The Libertines - There Are No Innocent Bystanders' screening as part of the opening gala.
