Another video from Sigur Rós’ Valtari Mystery Film Experiment surfaces this week, this time from director Ryan McGinley. Although we have already seen a video for “Varúð”, McGinley takes it in a completely different direction as it focuses on a yellow-haired girl skipping through Manhattan, as time starts and stops, yet she alone keeps on moving. The director had this to say about his creation:
This piece is my poem to New York City. I wanted to bring a childhood innocence to the streets, through a character whose own light and wonder effects the world around her. I’m always interested in an atmosphere where dreams and reality mingle on equal terms.
