The Metric song "Collect Call" has been used to score a short film by director Christopher Mills (Interpol, Modest Mouse, The Secret Machines). The song came from the album Fantasies, which was released in April of last year. It was the follow-up to 2005's Live It Out, an album that put Metric on the map.
The Collect Call short film was produced with the assistance of Bravo!FACT and is the dark story of what happens in the moments after death occurrs. It's not completely dark, however, as the film ends on a bright and optimistic note. Collect Call almost acts a music video for the song. The film was part of the Under The Stars screening this past weekend in Toronto
Metric also won Group of the Year at this year's Juno Awards.
