88 mins.
Directed by Jonathan Demme

1984

Introduction by Dr. Michael Klein, a valley-based organizational psychologist who worked as a synthesizer/keyboard technician in the nineties. Michael will introduce this film by discussing his work with Bernie Worrell, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, co-founder of Parliament Funkadelic, and keyboardist for the Talking Heads from 1980-1991.


Universally acclaimed as one of the best concert films ever made, STOP MAKING SENSE documents the groundbreaking band Talking Heads at their peak.

Filmed over the course of three nights in December 1983, the film features classics such as "Psycho Killer" and "Burning Down the House," not to mention the inimitable stage presence of lead singer David Byrne.

Hailed by legendarily cantankerous New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael as "a dose of happiness from beginning to end," STOP MAKING SENSE is a must-see for film and music fans alike.
