Trivia

Scenes filmed on the island of Malta, including interviews with Turkish Sufi musician Mercan Dede and his dervish dancer Mira Burke were omitted due to timing constraints. The song The Day The World Turned Dayglo by X Ray Spex, seminal British punk band, was released on orange vinyl by EMI records in April 1978. The lyrics of rampant plastic consumerism in an increasingly synthetic culture were pertinent to that decade and a prelude to the Thatcherite years to come,however, in the trauma of the years post 9/11 retail therapy reached ridiculous new heights and whilst the questioning of what was real and what was fake became paramount to some ,for the majority it was a cue to slip into further obedient somnolence.
