THE CHILLS: The Triumph And Tragedy of Martin Phillipps

Thursday 2nd-Thursday 23rd May 2019

"Martin Phillipps came tantalisingly close to conquering the international musical world with his band The Chills, but instead fell into decades of debt and addiction in his hometown of Dunedin, New Zealand. At 54, he’s been given a dire medical prognosis, forcing him to face his demons and realise his musical ambitions before it’s too late. This intimate portrait follows the eccentric Martin as he reconciles a lifetime’s worth of curious collections, looks back on a catalogue of heavenly pop hits and relives his place in the iconic Flying Nun and Dunedin sound. With a startling sense of humour even in the blackest moments, we bare witness to one man’s universal battle with the fear of failure and the jarring reality of his own mortality."
