Bjork’s ‘Biophilia’ Movie Headed to Tribeca
April film festival will premiere the concert movie for the 2011 album
Björk is bringing Biophilia to the big screen. On April 26, the Tribeca Film Festival will debut a concert film titled, simply enough, Björk: Biophilia Live. The movie captures a concert at London’s Alexandra Palace circa the titular 2011 album. There is a website and a pretty poster and everything. The LP-turned-app-turned-flick was directed and edited by Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) and Nick Fenton (Arctic Monkeys at the Apollo). Revisit Biophilia-era video for “Mutual Core” and “Hollow,” and also that wild Death Grips remix of “Sacrifice.” Björk’s last filmic venture was a documentary about the relationship between music, nature, and technology. Billboard reports that this year’s Tribeca will also include films about Nas, James Brown, and Bob Weir, amongst others.
