STOP MAKING SENSETickets: http://boxoffice.printtixusa.com/fridacinema/advance?i=18193
July 19 @ 8:00 pm
On July 19, The Frida Cinema joins art house cinemas around the world in honoring director Jonathan Demme by screening his landmark 1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense.
Oscar-winner Demme – who passed away this month at the age of 73 after an illustrious career that included acclaimed classics such as Philadelphia, The Silence of the Lambs, and Beloved – captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this remarkable concert film that captures the enormous energy and joyous highs of the Talking Heads’ live performance. Band members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison are joined by Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Edna Holt in this groundbreaking concert film that’s packed with the Talking Heads’ most memorable songs, as well as a number from Heads side-project Tom Tom Club.
Shot over three concert performances in LA in December 1983, Demme’s creative genius and the band’s explosive energy is what makes this film an exhilarating and exciting event. Wall-to-wall music, beautiful cinematography and the legendary “Big Suit” make this “one of the greatest rock movies ever made” (Rolling Stone).
Widely considered the greatest concert film of all time, Stop Making Sense will be presented on Palm Pictures’ pristinely remastered 2K Restoration.
