Heima
=
'at home' / 'homeland'

After years of traveling the globe,
the Icelandic Alt. rock group, Sigur Rós,
longed to return home and play for the
very country and people who helped
cultivate their distinct sound.




The beautiful film, Heima,
documents the 2 week journey of Sigur Rós
as they played free, unannounced concerts for
the people and places that make up "home".
Whether it was in old factories, community halls,
barely fields, or at the foot of majestic mountains,
old & young grabbed a blanket
and listened to their famed-boys
play just for them.

watch trailer
The film has a beautifully
eerie "Pink Floyd" feeling
