FILTER 48 cover stars, Sigur Rós, have been hard at work creating their Mystery Film Experiment series, giving a dozen filmmakers a modest budget to create whatever comes to their head when listening to Sigur Rós' album, Valtari. Today, the third film of this series has hit.
Acclaimed director Alma Har'el produced a film for Valtari's final track, “Fjögur Píanó,” which stars Shia LaBeouf and features "a man and woman locked in a never-ending cycle of addiction and desire.”
Caution, the video contains nudity.
Says the band’s bassist Georg Holm, "We really had no idea what to expect from Alma. Originally she was going to film us on super 8 in Iceland all playing the piano lines from the song, but then she rang and said she'd met Shia LaBeouf and they'd changed the idea, that was the last we heard of the concept and she told us nothing about what was going on. At first I didn't know what to make of the video, because it is so full of ideas and confusion, but now I completely love it. It seems to have no beginning and no end, and just makes you think about what might and might not be going on. It's a puzzle and I think it's absolutely amazing."
