As we mentioned on Valentine’s Day, Swedish singer-songwriter José González has reconvened with his pre-solo career band, Junip, and taken part in a documentary, which premiered at the Gothenburg International Film Festival earlier in the year.
The documentary, The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of José González, was shot over the course of three years and includes footage from his tours of Japan, Singapore, Spain, the U.S. and U.K., as well as scenes from a rehearsal studio, where he struggled to write songs for his second solo LP, In Our Nature. There are biographical elements to the film as well, including (according to Variety) an animated sequence depicting the meeting of his “parents during Argentina’s ‘dirty war’ years, their flight to Sweden and his birth.”
I can’t wait to see this documentary, but no U.S. festival screenings or DVD release details have come to light just yet. The good news, however: the Playlist uncovered the trailer, and it looks every bit as intriguing as the description let on.
