The Talking Heads concert film “Stop Making Sense” will be screened Thursday, June 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the Friends Community Room of Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St.

Over the course of three nights at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December 1983, filmmaker Jonathan Demme joined creative forces with cinematographer Jordan Cronenweth and Talking Heads. Following a staging concept by singer/guitarist David Byrne, this euphoric concert film transcends that all-too-limited genre to become the one of the greatest films of its kind. A guaranteed cure for anyone's blues, “Stop Making Sense” is a celebration of music, fueled by the polyrhythmic pop-funk precision that was a Talking Heads trademark and lit from within by the geeky supernova that is Byrne.

Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made with 48 hours notice by calling 594-0310. The screening is one in a continuing Thursday evening series of literary, film and musical offerings sponsored by the library and Friends of the Rockland Public Library. Admission is free.
