the valtari mystery film experiment

Sigur rós have given a dozen film makers the same modest budget and asked them to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the band's new album valtari. the idea is to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom. among the filmmakers are ramin bahrani, alma har'el and john cameron mitchell.

The last in the series, film #16 come out today. You can check them all out in this page! If you're lucky there will even be a screening on the weekend of the 7th december near your house.

Here are my favorites. #3 - Fjögur píanó - is directed by Alma Har'el featuring Shia Labeouf. #5 Ég Anda is directed by Ramin Bahrani.


 


I also recommend #2 by Inga Birgisdóttir, #9 by dash shaw and John Cameron Mitchell and #10 by Nick Abrahams
