Bjork to Present U.K. Premiere of ‘Biophilia Live’ at BFI London Film Festival

LONDON — Icelandic singer Bjork will attend the U.K. premiere of concert movie “Bjork: Biophilia Live” at the BFI London Film Festival, alongside directors Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton.

“Biophilia Live” was recorded live at London’s Alexandra Palace last September, and features Bjork and her band performing every song from her eighth studio album, “Biophilia,” and reworked versions of some of her past tracks. The songs are accompanied by animation sequences and science and nature archive footage inspired by the album’s theme — the relationship between musical structures, the natural world on Earth, and the universe. Images include volcanoes, viruses, lightning, plankton, planets and jellyfish.
