The Documentaries of Demme (+1): A Tribute - We’re playing seven of our favourite documentaries by the great Jonathan Demme (with one special bonus).
Our tribute series to Jonathan Demme comes to a close with a very special event. Cinemas across the U.S. and Canada are screening Demme’s unforgettable collaboration with the Talking Heads on July 19 as a salute to the late filmmaker. The definition of capturing lightning in a bottle, Demme and the band are in perfect harmony in this inventive and exhilarating masterpiece that finds the group at the peak of their powers. Get ready for pure musical ecstasy with David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Jerry Harrison and the rest of the Talking Heads—and be prepared to sing and dance in the aisles! http://ow.ly/byGz30coIgQ
This screening will be introduced by Chandler Levack, a Juno-nominated music video director, journalist and digital editor and staff writer for TIFF.
