Bjork to Attend the UK Premiere of ‘Biophilia Live’ at London Film Festival
The diminutive singer will be in attendance when her concert film, ‘Biophilia Live,’ makes its U.K. premiere as the Sonic Gala at the upcoming BFI London Film Festival. The movie, directed by Peter Strickland, was shot during a performance at London’s Alexandra Palace last September.
According to a statement released by the festival, the film features Bjork and her band performing every song on her eighth full-length, 2011’s ‘Biophilia,’ along with reworked versions of other songs from her catalog using a wide array of traditional, digital and otherwise just plain weird instruments. It also includes animation and found footage inspired by the theme of the album “which explores the relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena – atomic, cellular and cosmic.”
The festival runs from Oct. 8-19 and the full program will be announced on Sept. 3. ‘Biophilia Live’ will be in theaters everywhere this fall. Get more details at Bjork’s official website here.
