'Nowhere Is Home' - a brand new title from Heavenly Films about Dexys and their recent live shows for the 'One Day I'm Going To Soar' album is set to premier on May 9th at NFT1 on the Southbank, London.
Directed by recent BAFTA winner Kieran Evans and Paul Kelly (the first time the pair have collaborated since 2003's Finisterre) the film documents Dexys celebrated residency at the Duke Of York's Theatre in London last spring. Nowhere Is Home captures songs from those theatrical shows with a striking visual style and a real sensitivity to the performances onstage.
Interspersed throughout the film is an honest, revealing and touching interview with Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson that details the remarkable story of the band. Nowhere Is Home frames the motivation and desire that oversaw the artistic triumph of the bands recent album 'One Day I'm Going To Soar' and the live performances that subsequently developed from it's narrative.
This premier screening forms part of the BFI's Sonic Theatre Season. The film will start at 8.45pm on May 9th and will be followed by and Q &A session with both directors plus Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson from the band.
