About this movie

When We Are Born is a unique live performance film that explores the themes of rituals, relationships and our inner landscape through music from Ólafur Arnalds' latest album, 'some kind of peace'. Recorded and performed live on location in Iceland in summer 2020 and directed by visionary filmmaker Vincent Moon. Like the album that inspired it, the journey through the surreal world of When We Are Born is ultimately focused on how we all move forward - a theme made especially potent in the times of disconnect and isolation it emerged from.

The concept is heartwarming and profound. The technical aspects of the live recording format combined with strategic choreography between the dancers, musicians AND the camera-person is simply astounding. The entire work brings me to tears every time. It's a wonderful work of art!
