Jonathan Alley’s powerful documentary, Love in Bright Landscapes, tells the story of David McComb and The Triffids – arguably the greatest West Aussie band to have existed. In this grand interview, Jonathan talks about the long journey to bringing David’s story to a film, the power of The Triffids music, while also touching on how it feels to be an interviewer who has interview someone who has passed away. This is a deep, informative interview, just like the film itself.

Love in Bright Landscapes is in cinemas from September 9th. In Perth, Luna Leederville has a series of special events celebrating the film. Tickets can be found here.
