PN 23: Demme on Talking Heads, Neil Young & Justin Timberlake
Jonathan Demme is receiving a retrospective this fall at the Stranger Than Fiction screening series at New York’s IFC Center. Pure Nonfiction host Thom Powers leads this conversation with Demme about his concert films with Talking Heads, Neil Young and Justin Timberlake. Demme shares behind the scenes details of “Stop Making Sense,” “Neil Young: Heart of Gold,” and a little bit on his newest film “Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids” that’s coming to Netflix. This interview was recorded before a live audience at TIFF Doc Conference. Earlier this year, Powers interviewed Demme about his portrait films including “The Agronomist,” “Jimmy Carter: Man from Plains,” and “I’m Carolyn Parker” on Pure Nonfiction episode 6.
