Watch in Cinema

An immersive feature documentary and profound sensory experience from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground), and featuring original music by JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN), 32 Sounds explores the elemental phenomenon of sound by weaving together 32 specific sound explorations into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us.

Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker Green as he takes the audience on a journey through time and space—exploring everything from forgotten childhood memories, to the soundtrack of resistance, to subaquatic symphonies—and experience in new ways the astonishing sounds of our everyday lives.

32 Sounds investigates the mysterious nature of perception and the subtle yet radical politics that arise from sensation and being present in one’s body.

Stick around for a pre-recorded Q&A with director Sam Green.
