The xx have shared a new short film titled We See You - Berlin, the first in a series of We See You films.

The 10-minute clip looks at the close bond between The xx and their fans. Directed by Sylvie Weber, it features live and documentary footage from the bands headline set at Berlin’s Lollapalooza, alongside a number of intimate portraits of fans who attended the show.

Speaking about the film, director Weber said:

"My process as a filmmaker speaks to a consistent desire within me to unveil the character within, I keep an aesthetic and cinematic visual in mind when on set, cautiously leading the protagonists while allowing them to slowly become more themselves on screen.

In the case of ‘We See You’, coming across truly engaged and earnest individuals was not difficult, the vulnerability that The xx expose in their music is the basis for their incredibly close connection to the fans themselves. I think we've managed to represent in these four stories the feeling of the many millions who are so profoundly affected by the harmonies of Romy, Oliver and Jamie."
