A Thousand Thoughts
A live documentary with the Kronos Quartet
Written and directed by Sam Green and Joe Bini

Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe¬†Bini¬†have teamed up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for¬†a¬†wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man and Terry Riley. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with¬†the¬†stirring cinematic imagery on screen to craft an important record and exploration of late 20th‚Äď and early 21st‚Äďcentury music. As Green tells¬†the¬†multi-decade and continent-spanning story of¬†the¬†groundbreaking string quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, Aleksandra Vrebalov and many others. Transcending¬†the¬†typical live music and film event, this collaboration quickly becomes¬†a¬†meditation on music itself‚Äďthe¬†act of listening to it closely,¬†the¬†experience of feeling it deeply, and¬†the¬†power that it has to change¬†the¬†world.
