Directed by Oscar-winner Spike Lee, David Byrne’s American Utopia is a groundbreaking cinematic event that inspires audiences to connect with each other and with the global community.

“A joyous expression of art, empathy, and compassion.   Seeing something this vibrantly alive feels like a miracle.” – Brian Tallerico,

This filmed version of the electrifying Broadway musical sensation brings Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe-winning musician and Talking Heads frontman David Byrne together with 11 musical artists from around the world to perform songs from across Byrne’s wide-ranging career. Hailed by critics as “pure bliss,” the electrifying performance is a joyful celebration of music and dance, a call to action to engage in our democracy, and an invitation to reimagine our own utopias. Featuring never-before-seen footage and a special introduction by David Byrne, exclusive to this cinematic presentation. (Dir. by Spike Lee, 2020, USA, 120 mins., Unrated/PG-13 equivalent)
