Thirty years ago, Talking Heads first released the critically acclaimed concertfilm ‘Stop Making Sense’. Palm Pictures celebrated the movies 30th anniversary by releasing the film digitally and giving it a limited theatrical run.

Directed by Jonathan Demme (‘Philadelphia’, ‘Silence of the Lambs’), ‘Stop Making Sense’ subverted the typical concert film with long shots, minimal lighting and lack of audience footage. The film puts the music in the spotlights and focuses entiry on the band during their last-ever tour, promoting the album “Speaking in Tongues”. The movie was shot over three days at concerts at the Panatges Theater in Hollywood, California in December 1983.

The film has been digitally remastered for DVD and Blu-Ray before and will hit theatres in 27 different U.S. cities in digital form starting May 22nd.
