We watch as humanity's connection to the natural world is examined on a micro and macro level in Björk's groundbreaking 2011 art project.
Following two albums fascinated with human biology and anthropology, Björk's 2011 multi-disciplinary art project stepped back to bring the natural world and our place within it into frame.
Coined by social philosophers, 'biophilia' is the urge to affiliate with other forms of life. For Björk and her collaborators, this exploration reached a zenith with her eighth studio album, which includes custom-built instruments and an educational app that has been rolled out in curricula worldwide.
Premiering at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, Björk: Biophilia Live opens with images of crystals growing, tectonic plates shifting and fluorescent bacteria shimmering as Sir David Attenborough explains our interconnectedness with nature.
Shot on 16 cameras over one night at London's Alexandra Palace, Björk: Biophilia Live is a breathtaking and immersive experience that takes audiences front row, onstage and into the crowd. Directors Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton place cinema audiences at the very heart of this unique performance that begins with the calm rising of the moon and builds to a raucous, riotous finale.
