The Gate video it’s finally on-line on youtube for everyone to watch. The director Andrew Thomas Huang stated about the video:

The doorway lies within the wound from Vulnicura, which now appears transformed into a prismatic portal channeled between the chests of two lovers. Not lovers in the quotidian romantic sense, but in a broader cosmological way. As a throughway into Bjork’s new album, ‘The Gate’ is a declaration of hope sung by a woman refracted and re-formed into a luminous whole.

The references to All is full of Love are a lot, especially in the final part, Björk herself has admitted some link to AIFOL during the interview for Nowness.
