Location: Goethe Film Screening room
‘Heima’ is Sigur Rós’s first ever film, made over two weeks in the summer of 2006 when the band undertook a series of free, unannounced concerts in their homeland Iceland. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, and together with a crew of 40-plus people going to around 15 locations, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the world’s shyest and least understood bands captured live in their natural habitat. Playing in deserted fish factories, ghost towns, national parks, far-flung community halls, sylvan fields and darkened caves, the band reached an entirely new spectrum of the Icelandic population; young and old, ardent and merely quizzical, entirely by word-of-mouth.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
Following the screening is Q&A session.
