Here she comes, out from behind the shadows into the light in a cinematic fever dream. She's been in hiding for the most part aside from an interview on Q, some fantastic collaborations with Beck (a little of this and a little of that), and a few shows at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic games.
Look at What the Light Did Now- Trailer
A documentary about Feist and her collaborators by Anthony Seck. Produced by Jannie McInnes. Look at What the Light Did Now documents the journey of Feist’s Grammy nominated album “The Reminder”. This poetic film pulls back the curtain to reveal intimate partnerships with the people Feist calls her ‘amplifiers’: The photographer who helped her hide within the frame, shadow puppeteers in hockey arenas, an artist who built a thread-radiating mural, the video director who conducted fireworks, the pianist who guided the recording of the album, and other musical and visual collaborators. The film follows Feist and her supporting cast through an impressionistic array of flickering scenery, echoing stadiums, puppet workshops, the red carpet, a crumbling French mansion, definitive concert performances and uncommonly candid interviews. Itself a part of the creative mosaic it portrays, Look At What The Light Did Now illuminates the synergy of collaboration, art as magnifying glass, and the power of trust.
You can buy it December 7th and In addition to the bonus audio CD, with it’s 13 tracks and solo piano reinterpretations of Feist songs by Gonzales, the DVD release contains additional live and uncut footage from The Reminder Tour, highlights from the Living Lantern secret shows, a collection of short films, music videos, archival clips and so much more.

Little Wings + Feist Duet - Look At What The Light Did Now
(Little Wings, AKA Kyle Field, is a true west coast cosmopolitan, making art and music out of the seismic waves, skateboarding legends and freeway traffic jams that is Big Sur revivalism.)
Stunning. I'm so excited. So-so-soooo excited.
