The inspiring, tragic, and intimate life story of David McComb: cult Australian singer/songwriter and driving force behind one of the greatest Australian bands, The Triffids.

Loved by critics and adored by a strong fan base, The Triffids spent the ‘80s living between London, Perth and Sydney. Love in Bright Landscapes reveals the man behind the music; and McComb’s status as a quintessentially Australian artist.

The tragedy and triumph of McComb’s short, driven, passionate life is brought to the screen via music, poetry, letters, and unseen family archives.

“Tender and very touching it captures the charm, wit and complexity of a major artist.” – Filmink
