Nothing Ever Happens Here in collaboration with Edinburgh International Film Festival  present for the second year Sound + Vision – an evening of live music and outdoor cinema within Summerhall!
 
This screening launches a new annual retrospective event. Each year EIFF will stage a single late night screening of a notable and relevant ‘live’ concert film from the past. In tribute to acclaimed director Jonathan Demme, (maker of such classics as The Silence of The Lambs and Philadelphia), who recently passed away, we begin with Stop Making Sense, Demme’s  timeless record of the brilliant Talking Heads at the peak of their powers, featuring classic songs such as Psycho Killer, Burning Down the House and Once in a Lifetime. [PG]  
Doors at 6pm for live sets provided by RM Hubbert, Indigo Velvet, Ela Orleans & Sacred Paws.

Please note this screening takes place outdoors and is not seated so bring a cushion or blanket. Lineup is subject to change.
