‘The Ambiguity of David Thomas Broughton’ is a musical documentary following the creative process of one of the UK’s most enigmatic musicians and performers.
As a musical act, David Thomas Broughton is almost unclassifiable. His live shows are an exhilarating mix of musical experimentation and performance art, underlined with a raw unpredictability. Born in Otley and now living in South Korea, Broughton’s recorded material is dark but beautiful, marrying traditional folk with a surrealist edge. Off-stage, he’s an introvert with a passion for bird watching.
Who is the real David Thomas Broughton? Through a series of interviews with friends, family and collaborators, filmmaker Greg Butler attempts to unravel this ambiguity.
