12 Short Films By Seamus Murphy out on DVD

12 Short Films By Seamus Murphy is a beautiful series set to the equally beautiful album Let England Shake. The short films were commissioned by Pj Harvey, after she came across Murphy’s war-reportage photographs from the United States’ war in Afghanistan.

“I wanted to look at the enigma of England, its island mentality and complicated relationship with its past. Contemporary England springs from a history of colonial adventures, military ambitions, industrial prowess and a rigid hierarchy. Now it is also defined by its waning power and role in modern geopolitics. And it can be a gratifyingly odd place.” – Seamus Murphy, from his introduction to the Let England Shake DVD

The dvd is now available on Amazon.com
