Sigur Rós – The Valtari Mystery Film Experiment with Q&A
We speak to some of the talent behind the Icelandic band's recent poetic film experiment.
For their most recent album, Valtari, Sigur Rós gave a dozen filmmakers the same budget and an open creative brief to interpret their music. The results so far have been by turns surprising, elegiac and uplifting slices of cinema from such directing talent as Alma Har’el, Ramin Bahrani and Ryan McGinley. We are delighted to be premiering a number of brand-new videos in the series from filmmakers including Floria Sigismondi and John Cameron Mitchell as well as showing the existing videos on the big screen and speaking to the some of the talent behind this most poetic of film experiments.
We are delighted to welcome John Best, the manager of Sigur Rós, and filmmakers Melika Bass, Alma Har’el, Clare Langan and Nick Abrahams to discuss the project following the screening.
