Vincent Moons AN ISLAND
Vincent Moon is the genius behind the La Blogotheque Take Away Shows and several amazing musician performance/documentary films. His films are an audio and visual trip. His recent tip is a film with wonderful performances by Efterklang, called An Island. “August 2010, French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band met up on an island in the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album, and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.
Over an intense period of 4 days Efterklang collaborated with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their Magic Chairs album. It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated play mates.”
Looks pretty much amazing. If you’re in the Vancouver area on Thursday, definitely go watch it at the FREE screening at W2 Storyeum (151 West Cordova Street – Vancouver). I hope they have an LA screening soon. RSVP here. PS Booooooom is awesome.
