Thom Yorke’s video for “Harrowdown Hill” will be screened at this year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Here are the deets:
10:30 PM, Saturday March 10th – Dobie
11:30 AM, Saturday March 17th – Dobie
Director: Chel White
Cast: Thom Yorke, David Russo
While Harrodown Hill is based on the controversial suicide case of British scientist and weapons inspector David Kelly, the video does not reference the case literally but rather does so through metaphor and symbolic imagery. White’s video is a quietly intense call to consciousness in an age of disinformation, preemptive war and unprecedented governmental secrecy.
Of course, you don’t need to go to Austin to see this video. It’s been out for some time and can be seen at YouTube.
