The fourth video in Sigur Rós’s ongoing Valtari Mystery Film Experiment – the project where various filmmakers were given an open brief to make a video for a song from the new album – is by the band’s longtime collaborators and fellow countrymen Arni and Kinski.
Arni and Kinski have directed some of Sigur Rós’s greatest videos, including Viðrar vel til Loftárása, Glósóli and Gobbledigook. And in this piece for Rembihnútur, they have made a very personal piece of work, reflecting their own dedication to the power of meditation. It’s a series of portraits of people of all ages, all meditating, evidently as part of their daily life. Simply and beatifully shot, the effect is cumulatively thought-provoking and moving. And it works beautifully with Sigur Rós’s music.
Arni and Kinski have released this statement to accompany the video for Rembihnútur: “The much needed changes in the world will happen through changes within each and every one of us. We all want and need love. This film is a celebration of Sigur Rós’s music and the benefit it is having in the elevation of consciousness that is happening with humankind. People are finding strength in love, care, and respect for themselves, each other, and the world we live in.
“For the last twelve years meditation has been a way of life for us. Going within, releasing emotions, moving through negativity, judgment, discouragement, and the fears that are so often in the mind. Being able to move from the mind into the heart. This is what the music of Sigur Rós helps us to do and we use it as a tool in our meditation.
“In meditation we are able to feel and move through our emotions allowing us to drop deeper within our hearts. From this depth of heart we are finding more acceptance, compassion, love, gratitude, passion, clarity, intuitive thinking and much much more. We hope this video will inspire you to do your part in elevating the consciousness of the planet in whatever way that may be.” Peace and love, Arni & Kinski.
