AboutHeima, a film by Sigur Rós
Friday 20th June 8pm
Stroud Valleys Artspace, 4 John Street, Stroud GL5 2HA
Last year, in the endless magic hour of the Icelandic summer, Sigur Rós played a series of concerts around their homeland. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, 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. The culmination of more than a year spent promoting their hugely successful âTakk...' album around the world, the Icelandic tour was free to all-comers and went largely unannounced. Playing in deserted fish factories, outsider art follies, far-flung community halls, sylvan fields, darkened caves and the hoofprint of Odin's horse, Sleipnir, the band reached an entirely new spectrum of the Icelandic population; young and old, ardent and merely quizzical, entirely by word-of-mouth.
