Daniel Lanois at TIFF Bell Lightbox for an intimate conversation November 5

Grammy-winning producer and artist Daniel Lanois hits the TIFF Bell Lightbox stage on November 5 to consider his career spent collaborating with some of the top acts in music — U2, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Brian Eno, Peter Gabriel — and crafting soundtracks for such film and television projects as Sling Blade, Trainspotting and Friday Night Lights. As part of this intimate onstage conversation with Jesse Wente, TIFF’s Director or Film Programmes, Lanois will introduce his upcoming new album Flesh and Machine, for which he has commissioned short films directed by Atom Egoyan (Devil’s Knot, Chloe), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene, and Jim McKay (Breaking Bad).

Lanois will sign copies of his album following the event.

In the lead up to the event, TIFF proudly presents the video premiere for the seductive and entrancing new song Sioux Lookout ─ a film by Adam CK Vollick and Lanois with Carolina Cerisola. Check it out below.
