The Kronos Quartet might be one of the world’s most recognisable musical groups, but you’ve never experienced them like this before.
See these modern icons enter a new dimension as a documentary feature devoted to the group is scored live by its own subjects.
Filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini created A Thousand Thoughts as a ‘live documentary’, in which interviews and archival footage are accompanied by live performance by Kronos and live narration by Green. The result is both a wide-ranging and thoughtful exploration of a modern music institution, and a palpable reminder why this San Francisco-based string quartet remains at the forefront of their field.
Prolific collaborators, the group has performed with the likes of David Bowie, Laurie Anderson and Tom Waits and have created soundtracks to films such as Dracula and Requiem for a Dream. Don’t miss this tribute to a veritable musical icon that will woo newcomers and reward old fans alike.
