Sumney directed the film counterpart to the album, blackalachia. “Over the course of two days we filmed 14 songs, completely live, the trees as our audience, the grasshoppers our backing singers,” he explained in a statement. “Live from Blackalachia is a wild representation of what could happen if we not only try to reclaim nature, but also integrate it back into it.”
