In Restless Dreams: The Music Of Paul Simon

In as much as In Restless Dreams: The Music of Paul Simon is about his new album, it is also the definitive documentary of the singer-songwriter. ” Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies

From Oscar winning director Alex Gibney comes IN RESTLESS DREAMS. The definitive musical biography of Paul Simon – one of the greatest songwriters, and performers, in the history of rock ‘n roll. Granted unprecedented access to the making of his new album, Seven Psalms, the filmmakers also show never-before-seen footage of Simon’s extraordinary career, from Simon & Garfunkel to the phenomenal global success of Simon’s solo album Graceland.

The film juxtaposes the process of making the new album against archival material tracing Simon’s career and creative journey. This includes footage from the recording of Bridge Over Troubled Water, Graceland, Simon & Garfunkel’s unforgettable reunion concert, and Simon’s solo concert in Central Park performed in front of 750,000 people. IN RESTLESS DREAMS is a meeting of two masters of their craft, a deep look into the miracle and wonder of songwriting, and an exploration of an artist that has lost none of his curiosity, ambition and mystery.

The special film event will have a short intermission.
