PJ Harvey Doc “A Dog Called Money” Set to Premiere Next Week via Maestro
The streaming platform will unveil the film December 7 with an intro from director Seamus Murphy.
Nine months into this pandemic we’re still finding new ways to navigate the shift from live events to streaming experience, with the music-centric interactive live video streaming platform Maestro among the latest innovations. Next Monday, December 7, the platform will celebrate their first feature film premiere with the release of A Dog Called Money, filmmaker Seamus Murphy’s documentary on PJ Harvey, hosted by theatrical distributor Abramorama.
The doc follows Harvey through the experimental creation of her 2016 LP The Hope Six Demolition Project, with photographer Murphy tailing the songwriter from the Middle East, to London, to D.C. where she recorded the album in public spaces. Rescheduled from its initial March premiere, the doc will be available to view at Abramorama’s site before hitting VOD on December 11.
“We have been bullish on live stream film premieres for years and are delighted to see this groundbreaking new use case on our platform,” Maestro CEO Ari Evans shared in a press statement. “It is not surprising to see such an innovative group of creatives exploring this new direction with us starting with this powerful documentary. We look forward to unlocking new opportunities for the film industry extending well beyond the pandemic as the age of streaming and digital experiences continues to flourish.”
The film debuts at 5 p.m. PST on December 7—see the trailer below.
