A few weeks ago, we were given a brief teaser of an upcoming documentary about the one and only Die Antwoord. The clip showed footage of a concert from the highly controversial South African rave rap group from some of their earliest days together as a band. Now, as the latest installment of our Highsnobiety TV series, the full documentary has arrived.

Directed by the band's close personal friend Sean Wilson-Smith, the video gives one of the most intimate, off-the-cuff looks yet of a band who have become notorious for their manic, enigmatic personas. The full documentary was filmed at one of their earliest shows in their native South Africa, way back when they went under the moniker Die Fokken Antwoord. And for anyone who has yet to see the band in person, look no further; the whole visual was shot on stage right in the midst of the rappers' performances.

At this stage in their career, it is hard to imagine Die Antwoord outside the spotlight, but the documentary captures them at an integral moment in their life, just before fame thrust them into the mainstream consciousness. But even here, their ambition, confidence and overwhelming need to fuck shit up is abundantly clear.

Die Antwoord's new album Mount Ninji and Da Nice Time Kid is available now. Stream it below via Spotify:
