Watch: Björk Is Coming to a Theater Near You

Björk Is Coming to a Theater Near You

Is “Björk: Biophilia Live,” the concert film chronicling the last performance of her 2013 tour, the Björkiest thing she’s ever done?

Directors Peter Strickland (“Berberian Sound Studio”) and Nick Fenton’s document of this ecstatic Alexandra Palace show has wowed festivals from Karlovy Vary (our review) to London to Rio de Janeiro and, of course, the singularly ethereal chanteuse’s native Iceland.

Björk is in her element and in full command amid a choir of 24 Icelanders, rapturous visuals that marry the organic with the far-out spectacular, Manu Delago’s driving percussion and the multimedia feast that defined “Biophilia,” her eighth studio album which was originally intended as an App.

Well now we get to see the film in theaters stateside, and worldwide, with a generous slate of screenings beginning September 26 at New York’s IFC Center. “Biophilia Live” will make its way to LA, SF, Chicago, Brooklyn, Denver, Phoenix and many more US cities. The documentary “When Björk Met Attenborough” — enticing enough as a title alone — will accompany select screenings.

Full US rollout, as it stands now, and trailer below. More info on the international schedule here.
