JUNUN

Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson
United States / 2015 / 61mins

"a lovely impressionistic mosaic and a one-of-a-kind sonic experience: the music will blow your mind." - New York Film Festival

Last year acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice) joined his close friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood and Israeli musician, composer and poet Shye Ben Tzur on a trip to Rajasthan in Northwestern India, where they were hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Their destination was the 15th­ century Mehrangarh Fort, where Greenwood (with the help of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich) and an amazing group of musicians called from across the Indian sub­continent, worked on Ben Tzur’s album.

The team assembles a makeshift studio and over the following three weeks create the joyous collaboration that becomes the music and film of Junun (madness of love).  

Junun is a cross-cultural, cross-religious meeting point between the mystical Islam of Sufi, Qawwali, and Rajasthani Gypsy musicians interwoven with devotional poetries in Urdu, Hebrew, and Hindi.

The resulting film reveals the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration and a sonic, visual and sensory experience that will intrigue and capture your imagination.

Junun will screen with an 'Interview with Jonny Greenwood and Richard Tognetti - 2014 - 7 mins

Jonny Greenwood and Richard Tognetti discuss Greenwood's composition for the Australian Contemporary Orchestra – 'Water' – at London's Southbank Centre ahead of the work's UK premiere in 2014.
