Special Live Cinema Event
An immersive feature documentary and profound sensory experience from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Green featuring original music by JD Samson (Le Tigre, MEN). The film explores the elemental phenomenon of sound by weaving together 32 sound explorations into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us. 32 Sounds will be at The University of the Arts in its "live cinema" form, featuring live narration by Sam Green. (Sam Green, USA, 2022, approx. 90 min.)
