Martin Phillipps and The Chills are among the founding pioneers of the iconic Dunedin Sound, a ground-breaking musical movement of the late 80s that inspired seminal musicians around the world and ushered in a vibrant alternative culture in New Zealand. The story of lyrical genius, Martin Phillipps and his band, is a cautionary tale, a triumph over tragedy, and a statement about the meaning of music in our lives. This intimate portrait bears witness as the eccentric Phillipps battles the jarring reality of his own mortality. With a startling sense of humour even in the blackest moments, Martin reconciles a lifetime’s worth of curious collections, looks back on a catalogue of heavenly pop hits and reclaims his place in the iconic Flying Nun Records and Dunedin Sound.

Notable Pictures, in association with Fire Films, reveal the feature-length documentary The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy of Martin Phillipps’  is now available to watch worldwide via Video On Demand. The film charts a life-affirming battle between disease and creation for The Chills frontman, illustrious musician Martin Phillipps.
