Films of Innocence Trailer
Following the 24-hour premieres, the Films Of Innocence collection will be available for purchase via iTunes
U2.com subscribers can watch an exclusive 12th film, Conor Harrington’s visual interpretation of the Songs Of Innocence bonus track "Crystal Ballroom."
With the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 chose the artists and gave them complete creative freedom to create personal responses to the music of their new album. The result is an exhilarating display of diversity in approach, style and commentary.
Powerful and cognizant, Films of Innocence takes these artists and their works from the streets to the screen, as they scale the globe, play with time, and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes. The result is an essential visual counterpoint to the album.
