Love in Bright Landscapes

Tender and very touching it [Love In Bright Landscapes] captures the charm, wit and complexity of a major artist. ” Filmink

LOVE IN BRIGHT LANDSCAPES is a feature documentary that tells the story of the breakneck creative adventure of late Australian songwriter and poet David McComb – best known for his work with his band, The Triffids.

A charismatic art-punk with a pen, McComb dived headlong into a creative win-at-all-costs journey that met a tragic end. In 37 short years he became a major modern new Australian voice. The film is driven by the cinematic imagery of his songs, an aching inner voice, posthumously published poems, the flinty private letters and the tragic story of a driven man – who despite hell-bent drive – got utterly lost.
