Trailerama: Oddsac

January 26, 2010

Everybody’s favorite band of last year, Animal Collective, have conspired to release a “visual album.” With its burning heads and chimpanzee noises, the trailer suggests their hour-long effort might be a little more unsettling than Merriweather Post Pavilion. No, make that “a lot.” Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Coming soon: Grizzly Bear team up with James Benning.

This black and white tone poem is set to screen at this year’s Rotterdam Film Festival.
