LOVE IN BRIGHT LANDSCAPES
Q&A Screening with director Jonathan Alley & member of the Triffids, Rob McComb
Too Wordly for Australia, Too Australian for the World.
LOVE IN BRIGHT LANDSCAPES is the inspiring, tragic and intimate life story of David McComb, cult Australian singer/songwriter and driving force behind one of the greatest Australian bands, The Triffids. Love in Bright Landscapes reveals the man behind the music; and McComb’s status as a quintessentially Australian artist.
The tragedy and triumph of McComb’s short, driven, passionate life is brought to the screen via music, poetry, letters, and unseen family-archives. McComb’s poetry and newly discovered letters are read by Man Booker prize-winning Australian novelist DBC Pierre (Vernon God Little, 2003) accompanied by beautifully restored 35mm slides, evocative home movies and heart-rending interviews with musicians, friends and family.
