    A new 4K restoration. Music icon David Byrne was inspired by tabloid headlines to make his sole foray into feature-film directing, an ode to the extraordinariness of ordinary American life and a distillation of what was in his own idiosyncratic mind. The Talking Heads front man plays a visitor to Virgil, Texas, who introduces us to the citizens of the town during preparations for its Celebration of Specialness.

Unavailable for 50 years due to contract issues, Alan Elliot has now put all that electrifying footage together in this essential document that showcases the legend at her absolute peak.

    Legendary blues musician Paul Butterfield has been called the greatest blues harmonica player of all time. He snatched guitar legend Mike Bloomfield from Bob Dylan’s group and put together a crackerjack blues band. The only artist to perform at The Newport Folk Festival in 1965, The Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and Woodstock in 1969, Paul broke new ground in the blues while standing up for racial equality wherever he played.
