'VOLTAIC': Bjork's new film.
  • 'VOLTAIC': Bjork's new film.

Valley of the Vapors, in conjunction with the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, has scored an advance of Bjork's new film, “Voltaic,” which will be released nationally on June 23.

Screening at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 20, at Hot Springs' Malco, the concert film collects footage from shows in Paris and Reykjavik and material mostly from Bjork's latest album, “Volta,” as well as songs like “Hunter,” “Joga” and “Army of Me.” Her band features harpsichord, church organ and an all female Icelandic 10-piece brass section. It's bound, as all things Bjork typically are, to be visually dazzling, too. Tickets are $5.


For those Kris Allen fans who didn't snatch up tickets to see Kris and the rest of the “American Idol” top 10 in concert at Alltel on July 25, the Times has your back. In “Idol” fashion, we're inviting readers to submit a video of them performing any one of the songs Kris Allen performed on “Idol.” At least one talented performer will win a pair of tickets to see the Idols live in concert (and maybe more if the talent pool bears it).

To enter, upload a video of yourself performing a Kris Allen song to any online service (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and send a link to lindsey@arktimes.com. Beyond singing the song, contestants are free to do anything they deem appropriate in the video. Deadline for entry is July 1. Soon thereafter, we'll post the top videos and let our readers, via online balloting, declare the winner.
