STOP MAKING SENSE: An Arthouse Celebration of Jonathan Demme (July 19)

Pin It
July 19, 2017

On July 19th, art-house theaters across the nation are joining forces to celebrate the career of Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs, Rachel Getting Married, Philadelphia) by screening the seminal documentary STOP MAKING SENSE, an unforgettable concert featuring The Talking Heads.

 

Director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. The band’s frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band’s hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.
