Sigur Rós have just released “Varðeldur”, the latest video in their Valtari Film Experiment. This is the thirteenth installment in the series. Sigur Rós devised the competition in Summer 2012, asking fans, film makers and video directors to create a video for songs from their latest album Valtari. Check out the latest video directed by Clare Langan.
“the film explores the fragility of the human condition, frozen somewhere between life and death. shot with a high-speed camera, a human figure and water defy the laws of gravity. there is no clear distinction between dream and reality and the space that the film and the music create becomes a submersive world.”
“original, disturbing and simple” the winner of our film competition, fjögur píanó by anafelle lui: bit.ly/TCDgA9
