A documentary film about Feist and her collaborators comes to select big screens, festivals, and museums this fall with the premiere of >Look At What The Light Did Now. For those who will not get a chance to catch one of the special screenings, the full-DVD release loaded with extras â€“ including the collection of Feist music videos, rare live and archival footage, and a 13-Track Bonus CD â€“ will be released in stores December 7, 2010.
WATCH: The Duet Performance Of The Title Track
â€œLook At What The Light Did Nowâ€ with Feist and Little Wings
The documentary is a backstage pass into Feistâ€™s creative process, the story of how The Reminder got made, of the oceans that were crossed, the places that were seen, and the people whose talents made it resonate. Follow Feist and her supporting cast through an impressionistic array of flickering scenery, echoing stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, a crumbling French mansion, definitive concert performances and uncommonly candid interviews. Itself a part of the creative mosaic it portrays, Look At What The Light Did Now illuminates the synergy of collaboration, art as magnifying glass, and the power of trust.
In addition to the documentary, the DVD release will contain bonus footage of five single shot, unedited live performances from The Reminder Tour; footage from The Living Lanternâ€“a performance at Torontoâ€™s Cameron House as part of a week of secret shows Feist did at venues she had come up through; archival footage of her and record producer Chilly Gonzales; a collection of short films, and a collection of her music videos. The Bonus CD contains 13 tracks including solo and duet versions of the title track of the film, rare and unique live performances, and solo piano reinterpretations of Feist songs by Gonzales.
The title of the documentary, Look At What The Light Did Now, comes from the song of the same name written by Little Wings (Kyle Field). Kyle Field is a visual artist and musician who plays music alone and with others under the name Little Wings. Originally formed in the California seaside town of San Luis Obispo, the music of Little Wings imbibes the environment in which it was conceivedâ€”a dreamy, balladic tribute to the surreal aspects of the contemporary Californian landscape filled with slightly off-key tales of skateboarding legends, freeway traffic jams, and the hidden beach canyons of the West Coast.
