Retrospective LIVE! – Stop Making Sense
Part of the Special Events Strand
This screening launches a new annual retrospective event. Each year EIFF will stage a single late night screening of a notable and relevant 'live' concert film from the past. In tribute to acclaimed director Jonathan Demme, (maker of such classics as The Silence of The Lambs and Philadelphia), who recently passed away, we begin with Stop Making Sense, Demme’s timeless record of the brilliant Talking Heads at the peak of their powers, featuring classic songs such as Psycho Killer, Burning Down the House and Once in a Lifetime.
Contains flashing images.
The screening on Friday 23 June will take place in Summerhall Courtyard with an evening of live music.
Bands from 6pm; film after sunset.
