Poster David Byrne's American Utopia

David Byrne’s show America Utopia opened to universal acclaim on Broadway in October 2019, but had to stop after four months due to the closure of the theatres. Fortunately, Byrne’s show, described as ‘life-changing’ by many, can now be seen on the big screen, directed by no less a filmmaker than Spike Lee.

The film is screened without subtitles.
