To document the inspiration and process behind the artwork of Cargo In The Blood and Mills’ previous collaboration with Nine Inch Nails on The Downward Spiral, filmmaker Charles Leek has created a fascinating short documentary film containing exclusive footage and access to the artist, which can be viewed on www.cargointheblood.com
Leek has also created short ‘teaser’ films about the project, which can be viewed at media.russellmills.com
