Stream the trailer for David Byrne’s film “Contemporary Color”

Ten of the country’s elite color guard teams—the flag-flipping, sequin-studded crème de la crème of the “sport of the arts”—sync steps with musical luminaries from David Byrne, St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Devonté Hynes, Zola Jesus, Ad-Rock, tUnE-yArDs, and Ira Glass for a bacchanalia of beats, saber-spinning, and glitter cannons.

About the acquisition, filmmakers Bill Ross and Turner Ross said, “We’re excitedly ready to ramble with the O-Scope crew once again. CONTEMPORARY COLOR is a wild one and requires the kind of distinctive approach that they bring.”

O-Scope’s Dan Berger said, “CONTEMPORARY COLOR is an otherworldly blend of athleticism, grace, spirit, and art captured in an unbelievably electric and creative way. Watching CC isn’t just watching a film, it is experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime performance that is so much more than the sum of its set list.”

David Byrne said, “The teams and the musicians created this glorious, inspiring thing that runs counter to much of what is happening in the world right now – and the Ross brothers were the ones to feel that and capture it. We need an antidote, and here it is. The world is better than we think it is.”
