PJ Harvey will let us peer into her creative mind with her new documentary A Dog Called Money, which chronicles the production of her latest album The Hope Six Demolition Project.
Photographer and filmmaker Seamus Murphy, PJ Harvey’s longtime collaborator, will be directing the project. The pair traveled through London, Afghanistan, Kosovo and Washington DC together, and this documentary will let us in on these escapades.
Murphy said, “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.
“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.”
The pair previously collaborated on three music videos for the The Hope Six Demolition Project including The Orange Monkey, The Wheel and The Community of Hope. Murphy also took photographs for these projects.
The film is an Official Panorama Selection for the Berlinale 2019, which will take place from 7-17 February. A Dog Called Money is being produced by Pulse films, in association with Blinder Films and JW Films.
