VISIONARE presents an evening dedicated to DAVID BYRNE! see you there!

Visionare's 2nd day of music film and documentaries sees an evening dedicated to singer-songwriter-filmmaker-artist DAVID BYRNE (TALKING HEADS), including screenings of his breathtaking films, True Stories (1986) and Ilé Aiyé (The House Of Life) (1989).

Matinee 6.30PM – 8.00PM

TRUE STORIES David Byrne’s directoral debut, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas, which looks at life of everyday townsfolk. Louis Fyne (John Goodman) is a man desperate to get married; the lazy woman is named so for her refusal to leave bed; and Earl Culver lives with a wife he no longer talks to. Littered with beautiful oddities and iconic imagery, True Stories feels an artful pre-cursor to Lynch’s Twin Peaks.

Main Event 8.00PM - 2.00AM
Ille Aiye (HOUSE OF LIFE), which is an impressionistic approach in exploring the Candombe religion and its people, found in the Bahia region of Brazil. Building a cultural collage of music, dance and archival footage Byrne takes us on a visceral journey of a culture that has pulsating and evocative music at its core.

Following the screenings, there will be a live performance by Matt Motte and his band performing some Talking Heads classics + Dalston’s mischievous four-piece DJANGO DJANGO http://www.myspace.com/djangotime, who are headlining this years Stag & Dagger festival will perform Talking Heads inspired music.

More bands and DJ’s to be confirmed.

Shoreditch’s Village Underground is the perfect venue to play host to this fantastic two day event. Set up by a London and NYC collective of filmmakers, music promoters, VJs and artistes, this former Victorian warehouse is now a state-of-the-art music and theatre venue, and its vaulted brick arches will provide the ideal backdrop to Visionäre’s inaugural audiovisual showcase.
From house to arthouse, from prog rock to music doc, Visionäre’s debut event of film magic and audio artistry will be an event not to be missed.
