WKDU, Drexel University's student-operated radio station, will host a FREE and open to the public screening of An Island at Nesbitt Hall, Rm. 111 33rd and Market Streets Philadelphia, PA.
In August 2010, French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang's 8 piece-live band met up on an island off the Danish coast.
The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album, and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations. Over an intense period of 4 days Efterklang collaborated with more than 200 local musicians, kids and their own parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their album Magic Chairs (4AD, Rumraket 2010).
It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who at the same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated playmates.
An Island premiered February 1st 2011 around the world through what the band and director call Private-Public Screenings. Anyone can host a Private-Public Screening and the rules are very simple. The screening needs to be public, have a minimum capacity of 5 people and free entrance.
