This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Seamus Murphy.
Award-winning photographer Seamus Murphy chronicles the inspiration, writing and recording of an album by writer/composer PJ Harvey in a breath-taking work that is as creative as the process it documents. Travelling together on some of his worldwide reporting trips to Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington DC, Harvey collects words, Murphy collects images. Back home, the words become poems and songs, then an album – The Hope Six Demolition Project, which is recorded as a live sound-sculpture laying bare the creative process in Somerset House, London. Murphy’s camera captures vast and varied cinematic landscapes and intimate encounters between Harvey and local musicians, showing the humanity at the heart of her work.
