Watch: 8-Minute Short Film/Video For Arcade Fire's 'Afterlife'

From a zany, cameo-filled concert movie directed by Roman Coppolaa straight-up video directed by Anton Corbijn, and a full album stream set against clips from Marcel Camus‘ “Black Orpheus,” to a total charm fest of a live performance at the YouTube Music Awards featuring a dancing Greta Gerwig, Montreal faves Arcade Fire are setting a bar which other bands have to clear. And today, they raised that bar just another inch.

The band has debuted their latest video for “Afterlife,” which also doubles as a short film by Emily Kai Bock. Who is she? Well, she’s the helmer behind the fabulous Grimes video for “Oblivion,” and clearly Arcade Fire were paying attention. Anyway, give it a look below and btw, if you were concerned about the dress code at the band’s upcoming arena dates, just chill, they just want everyone to have a good time and it’s “super not mandatory.”
