Cinema With a Soundtrack in 'Rock 'n' Roll' Film Fest

If you find yourself jonesing for even more tunes amid the Bay Area’s bustling schedule of outdoor music concerts, look no further than BAMPFA’s summer-long slate of rock in cinema. Concert films, biopics, documentaries, narratives—this film series packs in a wide variety of mergers between the two art forms. Especially not to be missed is the June 13 free outdoor screening of Stop Making Sense, Jonathan Demme’s much-beloved 1984 depiction of a Talking Heads concert, and the June 22 illustrated lecture by David E. James, author of Rock ’n’ Film: Cinema’s Dance with Popular Music (the inspiration behind this series). —Sarah Hotchkiss
