The PJ Harvey documentary gets a US premiere date

‘A Dog Called Money’ debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2019

A documentary about PJ Harvey – and, specifically, the creative process behind her 2016 album, The Hope Six Demolition Project had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival last year. Now, the film has a date set for its US release.

Titled A Dog Called Money, the film documents Harvey’s travels through Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Washington, DC with her frequent collaborator Seamus Murphy (who also directs the documentary).

These travels inspired a number of collaborations between the pair, including music videos and a poetry book, The Hollow of the Hand, which is illustrated with Murphy’s photographs.

“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,” Murphy said, prior to the doc’s release. 

“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.”

New York’s Film Forum has announced the US premiere, and the film is slated to run there from March 18 to March 31. Watch the trailer below.
