Recorded during its late 2019 to early 2020 run at Broadway’s Hudson Theatre in New York City, Byrne is joined by an ensemble of 11 musicians, singers, and dancers from around the globe, inviting audiences into a joyous dreamworld where human connection, self-evolution and social justice are paramount.
This one-of-a-kind film includes performances of songs from Byrne’s 2018 solo album of the same name, in addition to popular Talking Heads favorites. The musical numbers accompanied with brief monologues allows Byrne to address various socio-political topics from police brutality, immigration and climate change to the American election.
Director Spike Lee places the audience in the centre of the show in a way few films performances have done before. Seamlessly integrating his cameras with the performers, he literally invites the audience to step on stage and be at one with the performers resulting in a unique live experience.
