Filmmaker Vincent Moon (R.E.M., Arcade Fire, The National) followed Scottish rockers Mogwai around last May during their three night residency at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. The results are found on Burning, an impressionistic black and white portrait of the act that juxtaposes stark footage of their live shows with mundane takes of them aimlessly wandering about New York City. The latter could easily be dull, but when soundtracked by the band’s bombastic crescendos, it’s eerily portentous and foreboding. Then again, Mogwai’s music could render films of plants growing oddly compelling. Burning is due for release on DVD August 24, packaged with the bonus live album Special Moves, but leading up to its release you can catch screenings at venues all over the country, including the place where it all began, Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. To build anticipation, you can download “New Paths to Helicon Pt 1” from Special Moves here, and view a clip of “I’m Jim Morrison, I’m Dead” from Burning here. We have the location and dates of the screenings along with tracklistings below.
