The Mother’s Bones (2016) was filmed with the St Keverne Band in Dean Quarry on the Lizard Peninsula. First formed in 1896 from the quarry workforce, the band is intimately linked with the place. 

Shots of the band playing in the quarry are juxtaposed with models of the seven crystal systems used to classify rock crystals according to their atomic lattice or structure. Music composed by the bandleader Gareth Churcher creates a soundscape for the film, while images engage with the vast scales of geological time.

For this special screening St Keverne Band will perform a live version of the film score, followed by a programme of music composed by Gareth Churcher.

‘The Mother’s Bones’ was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It was produced in partnership with Plymouth Arts Centre and Kestle Barton. With special thanks to Spike Island for their support in providing equipment for this event.
