This weekend saw the end of Sigur Rós’ Valatari film experiment; an initiative wherein the band gave 12 film makers free rein and a little dough to create a short film for one of the tracks from their album of the same title. Some great names have donned their headphones and created brand new work, including Ramin Bahrani, Alma Har’el and John Cameron Mitchell. The final piece of the jigsaw is a beautifully shot dialogue between a father and daughter and regardless of your liking for art-house narrative, can’t help but leave you wowed by its sheer good looks. I know, I know, it’s 12 minutes long and you’re very busy in the run up to Christmas, but I urge you find time to sit down and enjoy this and the rest of the series properly.
