The Talking Heads are set to reunite at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for a special Q&A session with filmmaker Spike Lee on Monday, September 11. This event will occur right after the premiere of A24’s 4K restoration of “Stop Making Sense,” the iconic Jonathan Demme concert film that marked its 40th year since being filmed in 1983 and released in 1984. Global IMAX theaters will be part of the celebration, screening both the restoration and the Q&A on the same night, with a broader IMAX release set for September 22, followed by a general theater release a week later.
David Byrne, one of the Talking Heads’ members, opened up about the restoration and his personal growth in a conversation with People magazine. He admitted to having been a difficult person in his younger days, acting like a “little tyrant” during some Talking Heads performances. However, he learned to value collaboration, recognizing that both sides benefit more from a good relationship rather than a dictatorial approach. Reflecting on his current relationship with his former bandmates, Byrne revealed that, while they are on cordial terms and keep in touch, they don’t spend much time together.
The Spike Lee Q&A will take place at Toronto’s Cineplex’s Scotiabank IMAX Theatre. Alongside the theatrical re-release, music lovers can also look forward to Rhino’s release of the full “Stop Making Sense” concert on vinyl and digital formats for the first time, scheduled for tomorrow, August 18.
Additionally, the article hints at other trending topics, including Sheer Mag’s thoughts on a song they wish they had written and a 2018 interview with David Byrne discussing the music that has influenced him. The official trailer for the restoration can be found below the main text.
