The Miners' Hymns (dir. Bill Morrison, 2011)
Drifters (dir. John Grierson, 1929) with a new score performed live by Field Music
Drifters is a classic silent work (filmed partly in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth) that follows a herring fishing fleet through the challenging North Sea trawling grounds. The newly-composed, cinematic score (a Berwick Film & Media Arts commission) will be performed live by internationally acclaimed Sunderland band Field Music, playing in their original line up for the first time since 2007.
The Miners' Hymns is an archive elegy to the industrial history of the North-East, and a unique collaboration between renowned US filmmaker Morrison (Decasia) and Icelandic musician Jóhann Jóhannsson, whose moving composition draws from the region's brass music tradition.
