When Bjork Met Attenborough + Biophilia Live
Friday, June 5
Gates open at 7PM, Films start at dark around 8:45PM

LOCATION: The Contemporary Austin - Laguna Gloria
3809 W. 35th St., Austin, TX 78703

As part of the Green Screen Film Series, we celebrate Tom Friedman’s monumental new sculpture Looking Up with cinema in the outdoor amphitheater at Laguna Gloria. Come early and picnic at dusk.

Biophilia, Björk’s cutting-edge music project, explores where art, nature, and technology meet. Filmed at a concert in 2013, Biophilia Live (97 min.) features Björk and her band performing every song on her Biophilia album using a variety of instruments—some digital, some traditional, and some completely unclassifiable.

The evening starts with When Björk Met Attenborough (48 min.), a documentary that follows Björk and broadcaster/naturalist David Attenborough as they investigate the connections between music and nature. Narrated by Tilda Swinton, this making-of film is a unique encounter between two iconic thinkers. Both films are Austin premieres.

Double feature with intermission.
