It’s official: Sigur Rós’ Inni is in fact a Vincent Morisset-directed concert film of the band’s 2008 performance at London’s Alexandra Palace, their final show before embarking on an indefinite hiatus.
According to an Pitchfork, Morisset, best known for his work on Arcade Fire’s Mirror Noir, filmed the band digitally, then re-filmed that footage on 16mm, then re-filmed it all again, “sometimes through prisms and other found objects.” The end result runs one hour and 45 minutes, and it includes the entire performance minus one song.
As previously reported, Inni will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 3rd. XL will then release the film alongside a corresponding live album, recorded by engineer Birgir Jón Birgisson, in November. Below, you can watch the film’s teaser trailer, which was revealed last week.
