Three shows only!

Official Selection, 2014 Tribeca Film Festival

BJÖRK: 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."
