32 Sounds – Dec. 14th

On Thursday, December 14th, at 7pm at the Museum of the Rockies, the Bozeman Doc Series continues with the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary, 32 Sounds.

32 Sounds is an immersive feature documentary and profound sensory experience from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) featuring original music by JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN). The film explores the elemental phenomenon of sound by weaving together 32 specific sound explorations into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us. Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker Green as he takes the audience on a journey through time and space — exploring everything from forgotten childhood memories, to the soundtrack of resistance, to subaquatic symphonies — and experience in new ways the astonishing sounds of our everyday lives. 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.

We’re very excited to be working with the local audio/video specialists at Poindexter’s to enhance the audio experience in the Hager Auditorium with 7.1 surround sound for this film.

32 Sounds world-premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim.

“A uniquely mind-expanding plunge into a dimension of the human experience so many of us take for granted, a rare and rewarding sonic journey with the potential to enrich our lives.” Variety

“A remarkable documentary and something you’ll never forget.” San Francisco Chronicle

“32 Sounds celebrates sonic joy. This philosophically minded trip across life’s vast sonic array also elucidates why paying better attention to what enters the ears — and how it fuels our understanding of the world — might just make our whole damn journey through time and space that much more meaningful.” The Los Angeles Times

The screening will be held in the Hager Auditorium at the Museum of the Rockies. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films.
