Portishead’s Adrian Utley Talks “The Passion of Joan of Arc”


In order to promote a White Light Festival event at Lincoln Center, “The Passion of Joan of Arc,” I reached out to one of the artists involved, Portishead’s Adrian Utley, asking him to shoot a few answers to our questions while he was on tour with his band. Adrian composed an original score for this 1928 silent film, along with his co-composer, Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory. Here is the finished video, which I edited together from the various snippets Portishead’s team captured at various tour venues.
