Two other films are included which never appeared anywhere else. Its In Our Hands, the brand new track recorded for Björks Greatest Hits, is the only pop promo directed by Spike Jonz this year. A wonderland of flying fish and giant plants, this video is sure to join Jonez other works as one of the worlds favourite videos. The second new film, is fully animated using brand new software to create a brand new life-form. Nature Is Ancient is directed by newcomers Lynn Fox.
