Since premiering on January 31st 2011, Efterklang’s collaborative film with Vincent Moon, An Island, has taken on a life of its own, exceeding even the band’s own modest expectations. Distributed during the first two months using the unique method of Private-Public Screenings devised by the band and director, members of the public were invited to host their own public free-entry screenings of the film in their homes, offices, schools et al.
Overall, more than 1,200 screenings of An Island took place during February and March. The Google map on An Island‘s website and the many group photos from screenings across the globe collected on Flickr illustrate the scope of this gigantic collective happening.
The momentum continued after the screenings concluded as Pitchfork TV gave An Island its online premiere, airing the film on its site in full for one week.
Today Efterklang and Vincent Moon has made An Island available for download and revealed details about the deluxe DVD release of the film. Via the film’s website you can now either choose your own price for the Digital Download or you can pre-order the deluxe DVD package.
The deluxe package is limited to 5,000 custom-made, eco-friendly, numbered, letterpress printed covers with a DVD disc full of bonus material. Also included will be a new Efterklang EP, ‘Live at Roskilde Festival 2010’ and is completely exclusive to the DVD release. Those who pre-order the DVD will be given instant access to the Digital Download of An Island.
The Digital Download and DVD Package will only be available via www.anisland.cc/home/
There will be several official screenings of An Island this summer, details of which can be found HERE.
