Floria Sigismondi interprets Sigur Ros “Leaning Towards Solace”

Over the past year, Icelandic group Sigur Ros commissioned a dozen filmmakers to each create a film inspired by songs off their latest album, Valtari.  Floria Sigismondi has released the final installment of the Valtari Mystery Film Experiment with the breathtaking interpretation “Leaning Towards Solace.” The short film features actress and fashion darling Elle Fanning as the pixie-like, pirouetting daughter of a self-doubting, hard-drinking father played by the great John Hawkes. Against the backdrop of a desolate, desert slum, we see their seemingly terminal relationship  revealed in glimpses of heart wrenching beauty.
