Yesterday the world premiere of Efterklang's film with Vincent Moon, An Island, took place at Pie Augusta Gallery in the 800 year old town CÄ“sis in Latvia. The screening was hosted by Raimonds Gusarevs who won the right to host the world premiere via a contest on Wired.com.
Following the premiere in Latvia, today the very first Private-Public Screenings of An Island takes place. So far more than 380 people from across the globe have signed up to host their own screenings throughout February and March, from Alaska to Costa Rica, to India to Russia.
In addition to all of the Private-Public screenings, there are also over 40 official screenings confirmed. The majority of these will take place at Efterklang's concerts in February and March when they embark on their last European tour for a very long time.
