Seamus Murphy’s A Dog Called Money: World Premiere, Berlinale 2019

A Dog Called Money – a new film written and directed by photographer/director Seamus Murphy – is a uniquely intimate journey through the inspiration, writing and recording of PJ Harvey’s album, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

The feature documentary provides a glimpse into Harvey’s creative process, filming her in a London recording studio and during her travels with Murphy to Afghanistan, Kosovo and Washington D.C..

Seamus Murphy commented: “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.”

Produced by Pulse Films, alongside Blinder Films and JW Films, A Dog Called Money is an Official Panorama Selection at Berlinale 2019, where it will receive its world premiere.
