In 2011, Icelandic artist Björk released her eighth full-length studio album Biophilia, yet the Biophilia project has continued beyond an album into performances, interactive applications, educational programs, and now a concert film. Working with co-directors Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton, Björk created this concert film for the Biophilia world tour’s final performance, at Alexandra Palace in London. In addition to the always fascinating Björk herself, the performance features an angelic Icelandic choir, Austrian percussionist Manu Delago, and numerous unusual instruments. In the film, the performance is juxtaposed with collages referencing tectonic plates, DNA, the moon, mushrooms, and many other objects of scientific interest. The resulting film stunningly illustrates songs and concepts from the Biophilia album and project, plus other classic songs from Björk’s extraordinary catalogue.
