POLLY SHARES HER THOUGHTS ON THE FORTHCOMING DVD

“I have always found film footage of concerts extremely boring; usually filmed all on one night, with a collection of fixed camera positions and uninteresting lighting – often an uninspired night is captured, as the performers are terrified stiff, knowing that the filming is taking place.

So, I knew that if I were to make a live document on film I wanted to avoid these things. There was only one person I could have entrusted these wishes to; Maria Mochnacz. She is a film-maker/photographer I have worked with for almost 20 years, and we have reached a level of dialogue and comfort with each other where ideas can flow easily.

I find being on tour to be disjointed, dis-orientating, and de-stabilising. Nothing is fixed. Everything changes daily and this is what I wanted people to feel and see. To sense a little of what it is like for me. Maria’s film captures this. It is, for me, the experience, very accurately shown.”
