Walking In The Opposite Direction: Adrian Borland & The Sound

Director Marc Waltman, Netherlands, 2016, 96 mins

Trailer here

This is a tale of headstrong talent and dark despair: English singer-songwriter Adrian Borland, whose poetic lyrics, passionate vocals and compelling guitar work fuelled the critically lauded, Stooges - and Joy Division-hued post-punk band The Sound, battled mental illness before taking his own life in 1999. This haunting music documentary, by turns troubling and tender, was made in the Netherlands where Borland found his greatest acclaim. Via insights from those who knew him best, it turns an unsparing eye on an artist’s fierce creative vision and fearless determination to pursue his muse, even at the cost of his peace of mind.
