Fifth Episode Of Sigur Rós’ “Valtari Mystery Film Experiment”
A visual poem by Ramin Bahrani for “Ég Anda”
A modest budget and a request: to create a video for one of the songs from “ Valtari” (XL, 2012), with total creative freedom and without any supervision from the members of Sigur Rós, who didn’t know what they would find until the moment they saw the finished video. This was the approach to the “Valtari Mystery Film Experiment”. “Ég Anda” appears once again in the fifth episode as the featured song. Ramin Bahrani directs a visual poem that sets images of various species of the animal kingdom against cathedrals of steel, brick and glass created by humanity in honour of progress and industrialisation. How long will the planet put up with so much abuse?
