Event Details

join sigur rós fans on all seven continents for a unique program of short films

the “valtari film experiment” program collects at least 17 commissioned “official” and fan-created short films created to coincide with the album valtari. the program will screen on all seven continents (yes, including antarctica). venues will include cinemas, cinema-like spaces, rock clubs, hardware stores, hairdresser salons, and beyond. with the band’s live film inni, large venues were particularly pursued, but this time, smaller, more avant-garde film-type spaces are sought out, though there will be many exceptions.

directors of at least some of these films will be present at the screening.

upon the release of their album valtari, sigur rós gave a dozen filmmakers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the album. the idea was to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom. among the filmmakers are alma har’el, melika bass, and john cameron mitchell. at the same time, the band invited fans to contribute their own personal creations.
