Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Sam Green. 2022, 92 mins. With music by JD Samson. From Academy Awardnominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) and vanguard musician JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN) comes an immersive documentary feature fostering a sensory experience that’s both rigorously thoughtful and profoundly moving. Green contemplates the elemental phenomenon of sound through expansive research and field recording, pursuing everything from forgotten childhood memories to the soundtrack of resistance to subaquatic symphonies. Ultimately, 32 specific explorations are woven into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and shape the world around us. A cinematic experience truly unlike any other, 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.
