Sigur Rós have confirmed a number of theatrical screenings of their new documentary film Heima, which was released on DVD Nov 20. All the screenings will be in high-definition with 5.1 surround sound audio, so audiences can fully appreciate the splendor of this remarkable film.

Heima—which translates as both “At Home” and “Homeland”—chronicles a series of free concerts Sigur Rós played in their native Iceland over the course of summer 2006. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the world’s most fascinating and inscrutable bands captured live while exploring their natural habitat like never before. The film was by Nick Fenton with direction from the Oscar-nominated Dean DeBlois. The DVD release includes the film along with a second disc of live performances from all over Iceland, and there is a deluxe edition of the package that includes a 112 page hard bound photo book. Hvarf/Heim, a companion double CD package that includes music from the film along with other new recordings is also available in stores now.

Tickets for each are available via www.DandEentertainment.com/SigurRos.html, and stay tuned to www.sigurros.com for further confirmations.

Word is the film is epic.

It hits Seattle’s Metro Theaters on December 20 at 8 pm.

I watched the DVD at home and ended up reliving the Benaroya show in my living room, so I can only imagine what it can do in a theater. Heima is fantastic.
