David Byrne's TRUE STORIES: 4K Digital Restoration
Music icon David Byrne plays a visitor to Virgil, Texas, and introduces us to the citizens of the town (including John Goodman) during preparations for its Celebration of Specialness. As shot by cinematographer Ed Lachman, Texas becomes a hyper-realistic late-capitalist landscape of endless vistas, shopping malls, and prefab metal buildings. Byrne uses his songs to stitch together pop iconography, voodoo rituals, and a singular variety show-all in the service of uncovering the rich mysteries that lurk under the surface of everyday experience.
