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.
32 Sounds exists in three 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; another specifically designed for a completely immersive at-home experience; and a theatrical version of the film coming to a theater near you.
The film premiered in January 2022 at the Sundance Film Festival. Visit our “screenings” page for more information about the theatrical version of 32 SOUNDS and upcoming live performances.
