This documentary follows Icelandic band Sigur Rós as they play concerts in their homeland – in fish factories, art follies, community halls, fields and caves. The music is hypnotic but the film is much more than that – it is a love letter to the people of Iceland. It reveals their love of nature, and opposition to the exploitation of their land by global corporations. Amazing photography of the country’s mountains, rivers, valleys, and waterfalls provide a background for live performances.
