Tonight at Cinéma de la plage
When the sun goes down, the screen lights up at Cinéma de la plage. Every evening, at 9:30, an outdoor screening is presented to festival-goers and passers by. On the programme: restored versions of grand classics, films that have left their mark on the history of the Festival, and world avant-premières. It’s gonna rock, roll and there will be love in the air.
David Byrne's American Utopia is a one-of-a-kind, dynamic film and a unifying musical celebration that inspires audiences to connect to each other and to the global community.
Why should you see it?
Because the mere idea of a collaboration between Spike Lee, this year’s President of the Jury, and David Byrne, the ex-leader of Talking Heads, is a weighty promise. In David Byrne's American Utopia, the filmmaker directs the performance of the last album of the New York singer who took Broadway and the whole world by storm.
