The lush, darkly beautiful Sigur Rós film INNI lingers in the psyche of those who experienced it. Now, the Icelandic post-rock band's music is set to creative filmmaking with the premiere of the Valtari film experiment, screening at the perfect environs of the Ritz Theater (where INNI premiered last year). Sigur Rós gave a dozen filmmakers — including Ramin Bahrani, Alma Har'el, and John Cameron Mitchell — a modest budget to create whatever came into their heads while listening to songs from their sixth album, Valtari. This two-hour film bypasses the usual artistic-approval process and allow artists complete creative freedom. Sigur Rós fans will have this to hold in their minds until the band hits Roy Wilkins Auditorium on April 3, 2013.
