Massive Attack have commissioned seven independent filmmakers to film shorts to accompany tracks from their new album ‘Heligoland’.

The videos are being shown on Heligoland-films.massiveattack.com, and showcase an eclectic range in styles. One, for the track ‘Paradise Circus’, features a 73-year-old former porn star Georgina Spelvin reflecting on her career. Directed by Toby Dye, it features a close up of Spelvin, who starred in 1973 film ‘The Devil In Miss Jones’, reminiscing on her role in the film.

Other directors include Ewan Spencer (‘Flat Of The Blade’), Edouard Salier (‘Splitting The Atom’) and long-term Massive Attack filmmaker Baillie Walsh, who also interprets ‘Splitting The Atom’.

Head to Heligoland-films.massiveattack.com to watch the films.
