David Byrne and Spike Lee burn down the house in this once in a lifetime collaboration.

A timely, earnest, and joyous experience, American Utopia is an inviting, celebratory concert documentary - blending song, speech, dance, and film.

Recorded at New York City’s Hudson Theatre, David Byrne is joined by a cast of 11 musicians, vocalists, and dancers from across the globe, performing barefoot and untethered, their instruments made portable - including every artist in Byrne’s grand dance.

Built from Byrne’s solo work, timeless Talking Heads classics and features from his many collaborations (including Fatboy Slim, St. Vincent, Janelle Monae and more). Byrne and Lee craft a dreamworld where human connection, self-evolution, and social justice are paramount, accompanying the music with musing monologues.

“Calling on all of us to think, connect, engage, and dance, David Byrne’s American Utopia unites the brain and the backside, which may be exactly what we need right now.”- TIFF
