Lau: live score to Nevada (plus gig)

at St Andrew's In The Square

Nevada is the psychological portrait of two lovers who have grown to hate one another; who are well beyond breaking point and must separate. Drawing inspiration from aspects of Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller’s fated marriage as a springboard for content and style, Nevada is an experimental study about a failed relationship. An expressionistic mood piece with a non-linear narrative spine, the film explores powerful themes of loathing, performance, rescue and loss.

This film was made in response to music from the recently released album by Lau, a multiple-award-winning folk trio. Now well-known across the world as a tour-de-force of virtuosic musicianship, the band will accompany the film live and play a short concert of around 45 minutes following the screening.
