A documentary about one of the most iconic bands of the Britpop of the 90s, primarily focused on their latest work, the unforeseen "The Magic Whip ". The film, which uses the title of a song from that album, focuses on three crucial events in the recent history of Blur: the unexpected recording sessions in Hong Kong, where they made "The Magic Whip"; a return to London for a particularly exciting concert in Hyde Park; and a new visit to Hong Kong to present the new album. Blur: New World Towers registers the revival of the chemistry between a band that seems to forget the fatigue and personal problems to do what they do best: rock'n'roll. André Puertas Oliveira
