In the summer of 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to celebrate the art of Color Guard: synchronized dance routines involving flags, rifles, and sabers. Recruiting performers that include the likes of Saint Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Ad-Rock, and Ira Glass to collaborate on original pieces with 10 color guard teams from across the US and Canada, Contemporary Color is a beautifully filmed snapshot of a one-of-a-kind live event.
Having completed an Americana trilogy of observational documentaries (Western, Tchoupitoulas, 45365), filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross direct their attention to this large scale concert performance. The Ross brothers do not simply document this night of collective performances, but conduct an immersive and visually captivating experience that captures the energy, rhythm, and artistry of the night itself.
After the movie on Thursday, April 14: A conversation led by David Byrne with Bill and Turner Ross, with special appearances by color guarders.
