“Inni” is “Sigur Rós’s” second live film following hugely-celebrated “Heima” (2007). That film positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland, providing geographical, social and historical perspectives on their otherworldly music. “Inni” focuses purely on the band’s performance in London in 2008, which is artfully and intimately captured by Canadian director Vincent Morisset. Interweaving archive material from the band’s first ten years with the sometimes gossamer light, sometimes punishingly intense, concert footage, “Inni” is a persuasive account of one of the most celebrated and influential rock bands of recent years. Combining intense music and experimental cinematography, this film is a tribute to the unique energy of “Sigur Rós”.
