Sigur Rós: HEIMA & INNI (Sacrum Profanum)

Sacrum Profanum
Sunday, September 16th, 2012

In September, Sigur Rós will perform alongside the Kronos Quartet during the finale of the jubilee 10th edition of the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Krakow. The concerts will be held on the 16th and the 17th of September, traditionally at the Tinning Plant of ArcelorMittal Poland in Krakow. Kino Pod Baranami invites you to special screenings of HEIMA & INNI - movies devoted to this marvelous Icelandic band.

INNI - filmed at Alexandra Palace over two nights, strips away everything and saves the raw performance of the four musicians themselves. And HEIMA which positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland, providing geographical, social and historical perspectives on their otherworldly music, with uplifting results.


12 p.m.

(in English with Polish subtitles)

‘Heima’ - which means both “at home” and “homeland” - is an attempt to make a film every bit as big, beautiful and unfettered as a Sigur Rós album. In the summer of 2006, Sigur Rós returned home to play a series of free, unannounced concerts for the people of Iceland. This film documents their already legendary tour with intimate reflections from the band and a handful of new acoustic performances.

2 p.m.
dir. Vincent Morisset, Iceland/Great Britain/Canada 2011, 75’
(in English and Icelandic with Polish subtitles)

INNI focuses purely on the band’s performance, which is artfully and intimately captured by French Canadian director Vincent Morisset (Arcade Fire’s Miroir Noir). Interweaving archive material from the band’s first ten years with the sometimes gossamer light, sometimes punishingly intense, concert footage, Inni is a persuasive account of one of the most celebrated and influential rock bands of recent years.

INNI is the intimate in the middle of a big stage. It’s the abstraction of the gestures and the magnification of delightful details. It’s a tribute to the unique energy of Sigur Rós. Inni leaves room to all the beautiful images that come to our minds when we listen to their music.
