Everything Is Recorded

Mahaneela’s recent work "Everything Is Recorded”, made in collaboration with CHILD, intimately captures the evolution and creation of Everything Is Recorded’s Mercury Prize Shortlisted debut album told by the musicians directly involved. The documentary film features exclusive interviews with Richard Russell and his musical collaborators, unseen behind-the-scenes footage of the recording sessions (featuring Baluji Shrivastav, Ben Reed, Giggs, Green Gartside, Ibeyi, Infinite Coles, Joe Brown, Lil C, Mela Murder, Nubya Garcia, Obongjayar, Peter Gabriel, Sampha, Tic, Wiki, Yazz Ahmed and Richard Russell) and a cinematic documentation of Everything Is Recorded’s debut live shows. The project vividly conveys the spirit of the studio sessions but goes beyond the music into something deeper, capturing the pure essence of collaboration and exploring what it is to be human; the relationships we have with ourselves and others, the victories and anxieties both big and small.
