32mins Colour 16mm
Collaboration with Patrick Duval.

Shine So Hard

"John Smith's film matches conventional, excellently shot material of "Echo and the Bunnymen" live (from a specially arranged concert at Buxton Pavilion) with footage that attempts to locate the band in a context of more abstract imagery. Smith deliberately, and jokingly, allows the two sections to collide rather than attempting to blend them." Steve Jenkins "BFI Monthly Film Bulletin", September 1981.

Commissioned by Warner Brothers Music.
