WESTERN STARS | Create Gala | BFI London Film Festival 2019


(cheering) – The film deals with Bruce’s
new music on Western Stars. We made a concert at his house in a barn, and Bruce spends time
in the film reflecting on the writing and the themes that he used in the album and the writing. – Bruce: The older you get, the
heavier that baggage becomes that you haven’t sorted through. So you run. – Working with Bruce
through the last 20 years, it’s amazing to see the
dedication and the focus he has, on the music side but
also how that translates to the film projects. He’s always keeping me
on my toes with ideas like filming the band in his barn. Or, you know, or going
out into the desert, or scripting a whole film with me, and this was a unique film because we worked directly together. I was cutting next door
to him in the studio, so he would literally
pop into the edit room and then jump into the studio, and we collaborated that
way, so we made the film, literally in the same room together. (upbeat music) It’s an amazing feeling
for me as a filmmaker to be at the BFI, this has a
history that you just dream of being part of this festival. This screening and this
projection, the energy in a crowd is a fantastic thing,
and it’s a great honour for Bruce and I to share this
experience with everyone. ♪ Tonight the Western stars
are shining bright again ♪
