Feist is releasing a film titled Look at What the Light Did Now. It documents the journey of her Grammy nominated album “The Reminder”. The trailer below will give you an idea of the expanse of what went on behind the album, something I was completely unaware of.
It is the story of how “The Reminder” got made, of the oceans that were crossed, the places that were seen, and the people whose talents made it resonate. Shot in Super 8 and HDSR, and featuring loads of performances and candid interviews, LAWTLDN is a kaleidoscopic look at the intersection of art and music. Look at What The Light Did Now will premiere September 29th at POP Montreal and October 3rd at the Raindance Film Festival in London.
This poetic film pulls back the curtain to reveal intimate partnerships with the people Feist calls her ‘amplifiers’: The photographer who helped her hide within the frame, shadow puppeteers in hockey arenas, an artist who built a thread-radiating mural, the video director who conducted fireworks, the pianist who guided the recording of the album, and other musical and visual collaborators. The film follows Feist and her supporting cast through an impressionistic array of flickering scenery, echoing stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, a crumbling French mansion, definitive concert performances and uncommonly candid interviews. Itself a part of the creative mosaic it portrays, Look At What The Light Did Now illuminates the synergy of collaboration, art as magnifying glass, and the power of trust.
