Event Information

30 years after the release of Talk Talk’s fourth album, Belgian director Gwenaël Breës found himself crisscrossing the country in an attempt to unravel the mystery surrounding the record.

The problem? Up to his death in 2019, lead singer Mark Hollis notoriously declined all interview requests and the band refused to allow their music to be used on film. Breës must attempt the impossible - to make a film about a band that does not want to be filmed.

The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with director Gwenaël Breës and audio engineer Phill Brown, who worked with Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Bob Marley, Traffic and Jimi Hendrix.
