In concomitanza con la sua presentazione in anteprima mondiale alla Berlinale, PJ Harvey ha condiviso in rete il poster uffciale di A Dog Called Money, diretto dal fotografo e filmmaker irlandese Seamus Murphy – frequente collaboratore della cantautrice britannica. Il docu-film racconterà di come è venuto alla luce l’ultimo album in studio pubblicato dalla Harvey nel 2016, ovvero The Hope Six Demolition Project e conterrà immagini registrate dall’artista a Londra, così come i suoi viaggi in Kosovo, Afghanistan e Washington D.C.

Quest’anno, PJ Harvey ha dato alle stampe An Acre of Land, singolo tratto dalla soundtrack di Dark River, mentre al momento sarebbe al lavoro sulle musiche dell’adattamento teatrale del classico anni Cinquanta All About Eve. Su queste pagine potete leggere la recensione di The Hope Six Demolition Project, a cura di Fernando Rennis, mentre Stefano Solventi ha firmato la nostra monografia dedicata alla cantautrice di Yeovil.

Seamus Murphy’s new film A Dog Called Money will receive its World Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival today at 5pm. I have worked with Seamus for over a decade. What initially compelled me to track him down as a collaborator was his unique ability to capture life and death, uninhibited, and without judgement. His work allows us as viewers to enter, contemplate, and extract meaning for ourselves, within the beauty, colour and framing that he captures. Once again this artist inspires and surprises me with his new film. I had no idea how he would bring together four distinct journeys through Afghanistan, Kosovo, Washington D.C., and the making of an album by a Dorset-born songwriter, and yet A Dog Called Money flows beautifully. This engaging film is poised, deeply moving, and carries with it an overriding sense of positivity. The photo used in the film’s poster was taken during the recording sessions for The Hope Six Demolition Project LP at Somerset House, in January 2015.
