Bleu Blanc Satan is a documentary about the birth of the French Black Metal scene in the early 90's. Rather than a simple documentary about a music genre, Bleu Blanc Satan explores the social aspects and meanings of the Black Metal culture and tries to understand the consequences of such life choices. The film features interviews with some of the most seminal artists within the French Black Metal scene, as well as an interview with Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) giving his insight on the influence of French Black Metal worldwide and its importance in music today.

Written and directed by
Camille Dauteuille & Franck Trébillac
