Magnificent’! Niall Stokes, Editor Hotpress ‘Whatever it is...
this is it. Kíla are right there at the cusp of it. Somehow you get the feeling they lit the fuse for the big bang.’ Bono, U2 ‘It’s a James Joyce ballet, an astonishing composition of light, movement and sound’. Pat McCabe, Writer ‘Like all the best concert films, it is shot over one night.
It catches all the wonderful, shamanistic energy of the amazing Kíla’. Neil Jordan, Film Director ‘I’d never heard or seen Kíla before this film melted my brain. If one could envisage a live concert film that feels like Africa crashing into Ireland, with visual effects by Cirque Du Soleil, it might look and sound something like this. Kíla are an unstoppable force of nature’.
