HEARTBEATS & GL

Hear My Eyes screenings are audio-visual experiences that push the conventions of film and sound beyond their traditional forms. Each event consists of the screening of a film paired with an original score performed live by Australian musicians.

The Melbourne duo GL featuring Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson will perform their distinctive concoction of 80’s analogue synth-pop as a live score to Xavier Dolan’s heavily stylized, visual delight Heartbeats.

XAVIER DOLAN’S ‘HEARTBEATS’

A love triangle is formed and friendship turns to romantic rivalry for gay man Francis and straight woman Marie when a veritable Adonis named Nicolas enters their lives. Sexual tensions mount as Francis and Marie await Nicolas’ show of preference. Xavier Dolan’s second film, happily under the influence of Godard, Audrey Hepburn, and Wong Kar-wai, is a study of the fall into love. Laced with humorous insights and unleased passion, we follow each stage of the typical love story’s progress.

Xavier Dolan is a brilliantly talented Canadian filmmaker who has directed 5 feature films by the age of 26 and received much box office and film festival acclaim – notably the Jury Prize and the Queer Palm at Cannes film festival.

LIVE SCORE: GL

Layering sultry disco vocals over intricately textured production, GL have cultivated their own evocative sound that is constantly reaching for the cosmos.  Facilitating a revival of the synth-laden sound of the 80s, the duo’s lush blend of neon-lit pop instantly enchanted fans and industry insiders alike.

Hand-picked to support the likes of Chet Faker, Shamir and Saskwatch, GL have also landed spots at some of the country’s most illustrious festivals, with performances at Splendour in the Grass, Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival  & OutsideIn.
