A documentary on PJ Harvey’s 2016 album The Hope Six Demolition Project has been announced. Titled A Dog Called Money, it will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, or the Berlinale, in February 2019.
As Stereogum reported, the film was directed by photographer and frequent Harvey collaborator Seamus Murphy, and features footage from recording sessions in London, plus her travels to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington DC.

“Polly and I know and trust each other,” Murphy said in a statement. “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.”
