Swagger of Thieves - the music documentary about iconic New Zealand band Head Like a Hole, is appearing at Melbourne Documentary Film Festival. I caught up with director and producer Julian Boshier to find out how this confronting, insightful, and emotional film came about.
When director Charlie Targett-Adams was invited to join Placebo's Russia tour he jumped at the chance. The resulting rockumentary is more about culture and creativity in contemporary Russia than the band itself. This interview with Charlie and the film's Festival & Distribution Manager, Dr. Rebekah Louisa Smith, takes you backstage and off-camera to find out how the film started and where it's going now.
