“Something like Koyaanisqatsi filtered through an episode of This American Life.” —New York Times
Academy Award–nominee Sam Green is back with a live musical documentary meditating on time, fate, and overall human experience. Inspired by entries in The Guinness Book of World Records, Green unites musicians Brendan Canty (Fugazi), T Griffin, and Catherine McRae (both of the Quavers) as he provides live narration about record-holding people, places, and things. Highlights include the world’s quietest room, which is located at the Orfield Labs in Minneapolis; the tallest man (7 ft. 9 in.); the man struck by lightning the most times (seven); and the woman with the longest name. Green last performed at the Walker in 2013, presenting The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller with Yo La Tengo. 2014, 65 minutes.
