Who said high school color guard couldn’t be badass? From Oscilloscope Laboratories, distributor behind the critically-acclaimed documentaries Kedi and Embrace of the Serpent, comes CONTEMPORARY COLOR, an in-depth look at one magical night where music and the art of color guard united for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

For a 2015 performance at Barclay’s Center, David Byrne—frontman of Talking Heads (official), subject of the classic concert film, Stop Making Sense (playing at The Frida Cinema Wednesday, July 19!)—collaborated with many award-winning musicians, including Nelly Furtado and St. Vincent, and a selected team of high school students to choreograph color guard routines to new musical compositions. Just as Wim Wenders’s (Buena Vista Social Club, Salt of the Earth) Pina explored the dance choreography of Pina Bausch, Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross’s (Western, 2015) reverence for their subject creates an intimacy that has been missing for quite some time in cinema.

And if that wasn’t enough, wait till you experience the inspiring pairing of audio and visuals captured live on film, of which Rolling Stone praised as “tap[ping] the cinematic potential of sound and vision in a way that feels genuinely collaborative and borderline transcendental.” But the documentary’s real heart is its focus on the kids involved with the project—capturing the joy, the frustrations, the successes, and excitement during this grueling, but rewarding process to put on the best show possible.

Don’t miss this opportunity to warm your hearts and dazzle your senses!
