SF Sketchfest is thrilled to present a 25th anniversary screening and tribute to the ultracool Talking Heads movie musical True Stories. Narrator David Byrne visits a Texas town on the eve of its sesquicentennial and gets to know some of the colorful locals (great performances by John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz, Spalding Gray, among others), who regale him with tales of their small town life. Unique, quirky, hilarious and touching, it features some of the Talking Heads' greatest songs, including "City of Dreams," "Wild Wild Life," "People Like Us," "Love For Sale," and "Radio Head."
David Byrne is an Academy Award-winning musician, visual artist and filmmaker. A co-founder of the group Talking Heads, he has released several solo albums in addition to collaborating with such noted artists as Twyla Tharp, Robert Wilson and Bernardo Bertolucci. He recently published his reflections on urban planning, art, and society in the travelogue-cum-journal Bicycle Diaries.
