Director Spike Lee documents the brilliant and timless 2019 Broadway-show by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, based on his most recent album and tour.
The exuberant American Utopia brings us Byrne’s characteristic, rhythmic and inspiring songs. For the show he worked with a band with fresh faces and dancers from all over the world. By doing so he transformed his music into an antidote against polarisation in America and the rest of the world. Spike Lee brings it to the big screen to motivate people to search for connection, fight inequality and celebrate life. His direction makes you feel almost like your sitting in the theatre watching everything unfold. David Byrne’s American Utopia makes one think and sing. In short: it’s exactly what we need right now.
