Description

Colm Laverty’s latest creation is this video for local Belfast based band Documenta in 2021.  Footage was used from the wonderful Spence Brothers films, ‘The Shadow Over Flatwoods’ ‘The Tyzzian Exiles’ and ‘The Testament of Caleb Meeke’. Commissioned by the Strand Arts Centre and Northern Ireland Screen. 

Notes

“Documenta are a cosmic drone-pop septet from Belfast who count David Holmes and The Charlatans' Tim Burgess among their fans. Since their inception in 2009, they’ve produced two otherworldly albums – Drone Pop #1 and Drone Pop #2, exploring their mutual interests of astronomy, melody and noise.The band have an extended version of their cracking David Holmes-produced track Love As a Ghost.” Anita Awbi – PRS for Music
