Björk: Biophilia Live:
Biophilia Live is a concert ﬁlm by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland that captures the human element of Björk’s multi-disciplinary multimedia project: Biophilia. Recorded live at Björk’s show at London’s Alexandra Palace in 2013, the ﬁlm features Björk and her band performing every song on ‘Biophilia’ and more using a broad variety of instruments – some digital, some traditional and some completely unclassiﬁable. The ﬁlm has already been hailed as ” a captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers” (variety) and ” an imaginative stand-alone artwork” (hollywood reporter) and is a vital piece of the grand mosaic that is ‘Biophilia.’ Directed by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland. UK. 2014. 97 mins.
