Depressed SFers Rejoice: Sigur Rós Film Heima Screens at Embarcadero Center Tomorrow

Posted By on Mon, Dec 17, 2007 at 1:31 PM

For those who slept on Heima's premiere last month at the Mezzanine, wipe that nasty crustiness out your eyes, take a bracing shot of absynthe and go see Sigur Rós's film tomorrow. In the meantime, peep the trailer up top. PR, whatcha got to say?:

Sigur Ros have confirmed a number of theatrical screenings of their new documentary film Heima, which was released on DVD Nov 20. All the screenings will be in high-definition with 5.1 surround sound audio, so audiences can fully appreciate the splendor of this remarkable film.

Heima - which translates as both "At Home" and "Homeland" - chronicles a series of free concerts Sigur Rós played in their native Iceland over the course of summer 2006. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the world's most fascinating and inscrutable bands captured live while exploring their natural habitat like never before. The film was by Nick Fenton with direction from the Oscar-nominated Dean DeBlois. The DVD release includes the film along with a second disc of live performances from all over Iceland, and there is a deluxe edition of the package that includes a 112 page hard bound photo book. Hvarf/Heim, a companion double CD package that includes music from the film along with other new recordings is also available in stores now.

Currently confirmed screenings are as follows. Tickets for each are available via, and stay tuned to for further confirmations.

12/18, 7:30pm - San Francisco CA - Embarcadero Center Cinema

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
