Too Wordly 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.

Support the completion of LOVE IN BRIGHT LANDSCAPES,
as we hurtle down the final straight!
Twelve (yes 12!) years in the making, LOVE IN BRIGHT LANDSCAPES is finally nearing completion for an August 2021 Premiere in Australia.
Which means we are in the home straight of post-production - the stage where all the money is required.
Our long term crowdfunding campaign with DAF(Documentary Australia Foundation) has been incredibly successful. Without the many hundreds of people who have supported us to date we would never have been able to get the film to the stage it is, which sees us now with 6 months to go and just the last $20,000 to raise .
Contributions via DAF are completely tax-deductible - and commencing in April we will be making available for all contributors exclusive online access to additional content that we have shot in the course of making the film, but which won’t make it into the final cut - not to mention updates on its progress, advance notice of any screenings, and a thank you in the films credits that will be there forever.
Your support will go directly into helping us make L I B L the very best version it can be ; supporting post-production costs such as music and archive stills licensing.
See the direct link below to the DAF site, to support the film to its fruition.
