UK, 2006 (MIFF 2008, Backbeat)


“For me, Kate Bush was always a trump card when the tiresome ‘question' of female artistic genius came up.” - Observer

Arguably the most unique female musician ever, Kate Bush's eclectic musical style and idiosyncratic lyrics have influenced a generation of singers and songwriters. In 1978, at the age of 19, she became the first woman to have a UK number one hit with a self-written song. Bush has since released eight albums and has toured only once, cutting an enigmatic figure whose popularity refuses to lessen with time.

A must-see for Kate Bush fans, Under Review features rarely seen promo films; interviews with Bush, as well as her producers, friends and fellow musicians; TV clips; location shots and rare live footage of her one and only tour.
