Ride, Rise, Roar
RIDE, RISE, ROAR is a movie about David Byrne. In 2008 and 2009 he went on a tour to promote the record "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today", on which he collaborated with Brian Eno. Director David Hillmann Curtis followed the band on tour, focusing equally on capturing the complex whimsy and energy of Byrne's on stage performace and on the more introspective backstage moments. This spiritual sequal to Jonathan Demmes STOP MAKING SENSE (1984) is this year's greatest concert film.
Hillman Curtis is an American designer, author and filmmaker. Curtis is widely regarded as one of the world's leading webdesigners and has published four books on new media design. He got his start as a filmmaker with a series of short portraits of artists and designers which he distributed online. In 2008 he made a short documentary for David Byrne and Brian Eno's "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today", which became the start of the relationship that resulted in RIDE, RISE, ROAR.
