Ride, Rise, Roar, is a David Byrne concert film by masterful Hillman Curtis that weaves intimate interviews with amazing concert footage. Hillman said he was drawn to this project initially because it involved one of his favorite musicians ever, David Byrne, and then because of the mixed genre performance concept. David had hired three New York choreographers to choreograph dances to songs, and then brought three modern dancers on the road along with a seven piece band. Hillman was interested in seeing how audiences would react to this wild combo. The result obviously was exhilarating… a real show.
