Screening, Stop Making Sense at Hopewell Theater


Thursday March 21, 2019
7:00 PM

Director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of the new-wave/pop-rock group The Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. What emerges on screen says as much about director Demme's taste and sensitivity as it does about the group and it's visionary leader David Byrne. Though some of the material in Stop Making Sense overlaps with the Talking Heads' earlier concert film The Name of This Band is Talking Heads, one never gets the feeling of by-the-numbers repetition; the group's energy is such that it virtually explodes from the screen.

This film is a part of Hopewell Theater's newest series, Films That Made Music, a series of rock documentaries about some of the most legendary pop, rock and R&B groups of our time. These beloved films provide an unvarnished look at iconic musicians and offer deeper insights into the music that defines our lives.
