Join us at the Broadside for a one time screening of the award winning music and Sound documentary,

32 Sounds

From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground), featuring original music by JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN), and with sound design by Academy Award winner Mark Mangini, 32 SOUNDS explores the elemental phenomenon of sound by weaving together 32 specific sound explorations into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us.  Green takes the audience on a journey through time and space — exploring everything from forgotten childhood memories to the soundtrack of resistance, to subaquatic symphonies — to experience in new ways the astonishing sounds of our everyday lives. 32 Sounds investigates the mysterious nature of perception and the subtle yet radical politics that arise from sensation and being present in one’s body. 

“It’s our hope that 32 SOUNDS can define a new way of listening to narrative entertainment,” said Director Sam Green. “In making this film, we have been inspired by many people who think deeply about sound, but these words from Randy Thom have been a particular inspiration: ‘We are fundamentally emotional creatures who struggle to be rational, and sound plays the role of the puppeteer, pulling our strings more deeply and compellingly than perhaps any other sense. Odd then that we don’t take it seriously.’ Our hope is that after 32 Sounds, audiences will leave the theater and never hear the world in the same way again.”
