When Ryan Dombal spoke to Arcade Fire’s Win Butler last August, Butler mentioned “a science-fiction B-movie companion piece” to last year’s album The Suburbs made in collaboration with filmmaker Spike Jonze. We saw part of that project in the video for the album’s title track. But now, Consequence of Sound reports that the full film, titled Scenes From the Suburbs, will debut at the Berlin International Film Festival, taking place February 10-20 in (where else?) Berlin, Germany.
A press release for Berlinale Shorts, the category in which the film is set to appear, states the following about the film: “Spike Jonze expands the music video into a film without abandoning the structure of a clip. The future has become reality. And the threat lies in the proximity of the military. Memories of a past summer.” (via pitchfork)
