Published Aug 17, 2011Even after it was discovered last week that Sigur Rós's Inni project was a live film, after having been initially teased with a mysterious trailer, there were still many questions left unanswered. Luckily for fans, more details have now surfaced.
While we now know the film itself will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 3, the flick will also be packaged as an at-home release containing a double live album, all of which is set for a November release. The whole thing will be issued on XL.
Inni is a 75-minute film documenting Sigur Rós's last shows before they went on an indefinite hiatus in 2008. The footage was taken over two nights at London's Alexandra Palace. While the group's last film, Heima, was a road trip-flavoured work that found the troupe travelling around Iceland, Inni is purely a performance piece.
While director Vincent Morisset -- who filmed the band digitally, re-filmed the footage on 16mm and then re-filmed it again, and edited down the material played in concert -- the live discs paint a fuller picture, with one night of the concert preserved, save for an omission of one song. Apparently the live album clocks in around an hour and 45 minutes. A tracklisting and firm release date have yet to be revealed, but more details are expected soon.
