Johanna Billing This is How We Walk on the Moon

Availability: In stock

The twenty-five minute long film "This is How We Walk on the Moon" was shot in Edinburgh and first screened at documenta 12. As with most of Billings' movies, we witness a group of young people in the process of learning €”here how to sail a boat. The film oscillates between performance documentary and music video. The title for the film is taken from a song by Arthur Russell on his posthumous album "Another Thought." In the movie the Russell song is the main theme, switching from background to main title song. The record features the full-length soundtrack with original noises, voices and background music, as well as bonus material and outtakes including a radio edit of the title song. With the record comes a poster-size interview between artist and Malmo Konsthall director Jacob Fabricius about Billing's relation towards music and record-making in relation to her art and film work.
