Award-winning war photographer and filmmaker Seamus Murphy explores the creative inspiration behind PJ Harvey’s ninth studio album in this arresting collage-style documentary charting their travels together in Afghanistan, Kosovo and the US. Throughout their journey, he collects footage and images, while she notes down snatches of the lyrics, which later formed her album, The Hope Six Demolition Project. Back in London, Harvey inverts these ideas of documentation and scrutiny by inviting the public to observe the album’s recording behind one-way glass during a 5-week installation at London’s Somerset House.
