“Released by Icelandic sensation Sigur Ros, INNI is being billed as a “surprise film event” and in keeping with the project’s secrecy, no other details have been released” followed by a warning for epileptics.
To add to my ignorance; once I reached will call I was asked which film I’d be seeing to which I replied “the one at 9:15” I had an absent minded moment but I imagine the gentleman helping simply thought I was an ill deserving press member.
Once I reached the theater I had to shimmy to the top because it was about 3 minutes into the film and seats were scarce. My initial reaction to the melancholy sound I heard was attraction. The visuals relinquished the sound in a way that is hard to recount. Every so often the director would zoom in on a part of one of the musicians that was unrecognizable but moved with fluidity to the sound of the music.
After seeing the film I requested the Sigur Ros Pandora station for my ride home. To experience musicians “push the limits of their instruments”(as my friend Sergio would say) was such an inspiration to me. Even though I had no idea what the musicians were singing about but the melodic and visual combination entranced me.
