Anton Corbijn signing at HMV Oxford Street

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.
