Tribeca Film Festival 2016: Contemporary Color

After three documentaries noteworthy for their humanity-affirming lyricism, Bill and Turner Ross step outside their comfort zone with Contemporary Color. It’s a filmed record of last year’s David Byrne-organized celebration of color guard, the flag-spinning dance form usually associated with high school and college marching bands. For the event, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the former Talking Heads frontman matched 10 color guard troupes with 10 musicians, from classical composers like Nico Muhly to old- and new-guard indie darlings, among them Ad-Rock, St. Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, and Zola Jesus, commissioning them to choreograph routines based on original music.

Described by Clark as “a party record you could play at a funeral,” St. Vincent is due February 25th.
