A DOG Called Money, the documentary charting the collaboration between musician PJ Harvey and war photographer and filmmaker Seamus Murphy, opens at The Eye tomorrow.
Seeking first-hand experience of the countries she wanted to write about, Harvey accompanied Murphy on some of his worldwide reporting trips, joining him in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington DC. Harvey collected words, Murphy collected images.
Back home, the words became poems, songs, then the critically acclaimed album, The Hope Six Demolition Project. The album was recorded in Somerset House, London, in a specially constructed room behind one-way glass, which the public were invited to watch, and which Murphy exclusively documented. By capturing the immediacy of their encounters with the people and places they visited, this film shows the humanity at the heart of the pair's work.
A Dog Called Money will play for one week only at the Eye Cinema, Wellpark. For more information and booking see www.eyecinema.ie or call 091 - 780078.
