The Chills: The Triumph and Tragedy of Martin Phillipps
- This event has passed.
Martin Phillipps led his band The Chills from being the darlings of the Dunedin scene in New Zealand to the world stage and major label releases. So how did he end up back in his home town, plagued by debt and coping with years of drinking and drug addiction? Following some alarming medical results, and facing his own mortality, Phillipps must realise his musical ambitions before it is too late. Julia Parnell and Rob Curry’s documentary enables Phillipps’ own darkly comical humour and eccentric lifestyle to make for a fascinating, cautionary tale, whilst his musical talent shines bright though the tragedy.
