In 1984, the late, great Market Theater's engagement of "Stop Making Sense" marked a milestone of Seattle filmgoing, and this David Byrne concert documentary functions as a latter-day sequel, focusing on Byrne's recent collaborations with über-producer Brian Eno. Mixing Talking Heads hits with his latest solo work, Byrne makes inspired use of modern dancers during the concert, adding an ebullient, experimental accompaniment to the music. Rehearsal footage, backstage interviews and an appearance by the enigmatic Eno make this a must-see for Byrne's loyal fans. Director David Hillman Curtis, producer Will Schluter and cinematographer Ben Wolf are scheduled to attend the screening.
