All is Full of Love

UK, 1999 (MIFF 1999, The Bug)

Director: Chris Cunningham

The music clip for Bjork's All is Full of Love features a pair of white robots embracing in a way that is compellingly human. Like many of Chris Cunningham's music clips, this one has created controversy, but as Cunningham stated jokingly in Times/Metro magazine: "I don't think there are any rules about robots having sex"

All is Full of Love reflects Cunningham's interest in gimmickry, special eflects and robots. Cunningham has attracted so much acclaim in this area that he was selected to work on models for Stanley Kubrick's unfin­ished feature film, AI until Kubrick's recent untimely death.

Also screening before selected features throughout the Festival are other Cunningham music videos, including Aphex Twin's Windowlicker, Squarepusher's Come on My Selector, the award-winning clip for Portishead's Only You and Madonna's Frozen.
