French electronic music duo Daft Punk announced their retirement today after 28 years of iconic dance music. They broke the news with an 8-minute video titled “Epilogue,” which features the duo walking across the desert in their robot costumes and one of them being blown up. The clip is from Daft Punk’s 2006 science fiction art film Electroma.
Electroma tells the story of two “hero robots” (played by Peter Hurteau and Michael Reich) who attempt to become human. The soundtrack includes songs by Brian Eno, Curtis Mayfield, Linda Perhacs, Sébastien Tellier, and Todd Rundgren.
We’ve featured both the clip and the entire film below.
