Too Worldly 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.
