A new PJ Harvey documentary is set to premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, Berlinale 2019, in February.
The film, created by Irish photographer and director Seamus Murphy, follows the creative process of Harvey’s 2016 album The Hope Six Demolition Project. The film follows Harvey through recording sessions London, as well as their travels to Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Washington.
“Polly and I know and trust each other. Enough for her to travel with me to Afghanistan and other challenging places, and for me to believe she’d bring back magic,” Murphy said in a statement. “She then invited me into a big white box behind one-way windows to film every moment of the recording of the songs she brought back. Individually and together, this is our response to what we encountered.”
