Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, collectively known as Daft Punk, are featured in the Mia Hansen-Løve-directed film Eden, which focuses on the rise of electronic music. Above, you can check out a trailer for the movie, which shows the duo as well as snippet of “One More Time.” Eden premieres this Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Paul (Félix de Givry) is a teenager in the underground dance music scene of early-nineties Paris. Raves dominate, but he’s drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house scene. He and a friend form a DJ duo called—with unfathomable layers of irony—Cheers. Two of their friends form a group with a similarly odd name: Daft Punk. These young artists plunge into the life, building their following one set at a time, dropping out of daytime society to form a community based on the high of the ceaseless beats and bass. There are drugs. There is sex. Paul hooks up with an American in Paris, played by the spirited Greta Gerwig (also appearing at the Festival in The Humbling), but that may be fleeting.
