The band also released the much anticipated video for “Reflektor” via website, justareflektor.com. Produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Vincent Morisset, the film is “an interactive short film that explores the themes in Arcade Fire’s ‘Reflektor’ through two devices simultaneously: the computer and smartphone/tablet. Filmed in Haiti, where the band’s singer Régine Chassagne was raised, the story follows a young woman who travels between her world an our own.” The film was shot in Jacmel and features the track ‘Reflektor’ in full. Users must have the Google Chrome web browser to interact with the film.
Another video, directed by Anton Corbjin has also been released. You can watch it below.
