About the Movie
11 of the world’s most acclaimed urban artists unveil their work through a collection of art films, inspired by U2’s Songs of Innocence. Taking the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point, U2 pioneered the project to celebrate the unique democratic power of urban art. Oliver Jeffers, Robin Rhode, D*Face, Mode 2, Chloe Early, Ganzeer, Vhils, Maser, ROA, DALeast, and Todd James make up this global multidisciplinary group project. Chosen for their undisputed ability to capture the imaginations of their audiences, the artists were given complete creative freedom to showcase their personal responses to U2’s music, through a series of part-animated, part live action films. The result is an exhilarating display of diversity in approach, style and commentary. Powerful and cognizant, their works scale the globe, play with time, and weave between heightened reality and animated dreamscapes. United for the first time in film, the eleven international artists have taken their work from the streets to the screen. These original works of video art transpose their visions from the physical to the digital and are collected here together as a visual counter-point to the album, a set of unique and compelling Films of Innocence.
Not about U2
This film has nothing to do with U2. From the title you would think it is. I honestly don’t know how the film maker got away with calling it U2: Films of Innocence and even using a U2 song and the film has nothing to do with the band at all. Really sad someone would try and use the name U2 to sell their movie. I won’t be surprised if they get sued for this.
Looks cool and creative
Looking forward to this. Think its cool of U2 to offer other artists a chance to interpret thier work through another art form. I like the different film approaches. Looking forward to seeing this and sampling a few new film artists and generes - while listening to U2!! Cool
