A film by Sam Green
With music by JD Samson
An immersive documentary and profound sensory experience from filmmaker Sam Green that explores the elemental phenomenon of sound. The film is a meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us.
It exists in two unique and equally exciting forms: one for a live audience, complete with individual headphones for each audience member and featuring live narration by Sam Green and live original music by JD Samson; and another specifically designed for a completely immersive at-home or theatrical experience.
32 Sounds premiered in January 2022 at the Sundance Film Festival, and was an official selection of the 2022 SXSW Film Festival. Stay tuned for more information about the theatrical/streaming version of 32 SOUNDS and upcoming live performances.
