About the film

Nominated for 6 Primetime Emmy® Awards

Directed by Oscar®-winner Spike Lee, David Byrne's American Utopia is a groundbreaking cinematic event that inspires audiences to connect with each other and with the global community. This filmed version of the electrifying Broadway musical sensation brings Oscar®, Grammy®, and Golden Globe®-winning musician David Byrne (Talking Heads) together with 11 musical artists from around the world to perform songs from across Byrne’s career.

Hailed by critics as “pure bliss,” the performance is a joyful celebration of music and dance, a call to action to engage in our democracy, and an invitation to reimagine our own utopias. Featuring a special introduction by David Byrne and an exclusive conversation between Byrne and director Spike Lee.
