TONIGHT: Hopelandic Springs Eternal

 

PhilaMOCA presents a two hour presentation of short films from around the world created to coincide with the Sigur Rós album VALTARI. 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 (BOMBAY BEACH), Andrea Arnold (FISH TANK), John Cameron Mitchell (HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH), Ramin Bahrani (CHOP SHOP), and Floria Sigismondi (THE RUNAWAYS).  At the same time, the band invited fans to contribute their own personal creations.
