Arcade Fire – Afterlife (Lyric Video)

Arcade Fire features footage from the 1959 Brazilian/French/Italian film Black Orpheus in their lyric video for Afterlife, the second single from their latest album Reflektor.

Here’s a brief synopsis about the film:

Winner of both the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film and the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or, Marcel Camus’ Black Orpheus (Orfeu negro) brings the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to the twentieth-century madness of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its eye-popping photography and ravishing, epochal soundtrack, Black Orpheus was an international cultural event, and it kicked off the bossa nova craze that set hi-fis across America spinning.

Reflektor is out on stores next Monday.
