Since coming to international attention with The Sugarcubes, Björk has proven to be a fearless innovator. Her restless approach has led to a remarkable body of work, idiosyncratic and beautiful, providing a suitable backdrop for one of music’s most astonishing voices. Her most recent album, Biophilia, saw Björk embrace new technology in a typically unique manner, using an iPad to compose and record, and ultimately releasing a series of apps which allowed listeners to interact with the music in a wholly new fashion. The subsequent tour lasted two years, the final show of which is documented in the film.

Featuring an Icelandic choir, specially created instruments, visuals perfectly matched to the music, and a setlist that draws on her entire career (usually presenting old favourites in entirely new arrangements), it’s a vital record of an exciting artist. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
