Sigur Ros' Heima

'Heima' by Sigur Ros Coming to TO


Are you a fan of Icelandic experimental and classical music? Sure you are. In that case, you're in luck. Sigur R贸s, Iceland's post-rock darlings, are screening their first film, Heima at The Royal next Friday, making this the film's only Canadian screening before it's released on DVD.

The film takes viewers along for a ride with the band who tour their homeland, making impromptu, unannounced stops in small towns to do their thing. You've probably heard a lot about the beauty of the land of Ice, and Heima promises to give an inspiring take on the people and landscape that have inspired the band to create their truly mesmerizing pieces.

Keep on reading to check out the trailer and more details on the screening.

The Royal (608 College St) will be showing the film on November 23rd at 11:15pm. Advance tickets are available at Soundscapes and Pages Books, but they've sold out online already, so be sure to pick them up soon if you plan on checking out the film.

Should you miss it, though, the DVD will be released in North America on November 20th.

Also, sorry for the omission of the accent in the band's name in the title. blogTO's evil computer brain just isn't that into it.
