Jacob Gentry directs After the Disco, a sci-fi short film set to tracks from Broken Bells' new album of the same name. The film stars Kate Mara and Anton Yelchin and is being released in installments.

Says Gentry to Complex, "[Frontman] James Mercer was sending me images of Barbarella and Logan’s Run, that sort of late ‘60s/early ‘70s science fiction. The same way we mixed all those visual styles is the same way Broken Bells mixed all the musical styles from every era to make something unique. It has an otherworldly feel."
