“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized? I don’t think so.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
Jonathan Demme made his documentary debut with this infectious showcase for the Talking Heads, filming the band on stage just after their big mainstream success with the album Speaking in Tongues and the single “Burning Down the House.” There are so many ways we want to remember Jonathan, who passed away in April last year. One of the best we can think of is to show this live performance film every single year.
This screening event is made possible thanks to the generous support of Palm Pictures.
