The Maccabees 'Elephant Days' by James Caddick & James Cronin - the trailer
James Caddick and James Cronin's Elephant Days is a documentary about The Maccabees recording their fourth album Marks To Prove It, and the band’s creative process as they work in self-imposed isolation in an anonymous studio in London’s Elephant and Castle. But the film also becomes a compelling portrait of the area and its local population at a time of radical change.
Richard and Lyla create gardens in surprising spaces; local musician Natty is having a suit tailored; the Peckham Prides basketball team are striving for success; Crossways is a concrete church where BB heals through prayer; and Arment's Pie and Mash shop is an enduring local institution. All of these tales are woven through the band’s experimentation – their false turns, self-doubts and triumphs – as they create what will become an incendiary, life-affirming album.
You get a real sense of this from the exhilarating trailer for Elephant Days which has just been released, ahead of the film's premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on Monday, 12th October.
