The Valtari mystery film experiment is a series of films commissioned by Sigur Rós to interpret songs from the band’s latest release, Valtari. The band eschewed traditional music video content by approaching a select group of directors and artists with a simple task: create whatever comes to mind when hearing songs from Valtari.

Film #16 in the series, entitled, “Leaning Towards Solace,” was directed by visual artist Floria Sigismondi and does an excellent job of capturing the naturally cinematic tone of Sigur Rós’ music.
