WHAT: Signing session

WHERE: HMV London, 150 Oxford Street W1

WHEN: Monday 11th February at 6.00 pm

Director of 2007’s biopic ‘Control’ - Anton Corbijn – celebrates the
release of the film on DVD and the book, ‘In Control’, with a signing
session at HMV’s flagship store on Oxford Street in London’s West End
on Monday 11th February.

Anton will be at the store from 6.00 pm to meet fans and sign copies of
the DVD and the book which are released the same day.

'Control', which has been nominated for three BAFTA Awards - including
‘Best British Film’- details the life of the troubled young musician,
Ian Curtis, who forged a new kind of music out of the punk rock scene
of 1970s Britain, and the band Joy Division, which he headed from 1977
to 1980. It also deals with his rocky marriage and extramarital
affairs, as well as his increasingly frequent seizures, which were
thought to contribute to the circumstances leading to his suicide on
the eve of Joy Division's first U.S. tour.
