7 :30 PM – 10 PM

Rooftop Films and Arts Brookfield team up this summer at Brookfield Place to present three festive nights of special screenings along the Waterfront Plaza. 

RACING EXTINCTION (Louie Psihoyos)
Filmmakers of The Cove bring you the latest environmental exposé.

Follow a team of artists and activists that employ their unique skills and talents to expose the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Photographers, divers, and undercover agents reveal the two worlds that drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species; the international wildlife trade, and the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it. Presented in partnership with Discovery Channel and Arts Brookfield.

Rooftop Films and Arts Brookfield team up this summer at Brookfield Place to present three festive nights of special screenings along the Waterfront Plaza. 

STOP MAKING SENSE (Jonathan Demme)
An innovative concert movie that captures the enormous energy and joyous highs of the Talking Heads live performance. Band members David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison are joined by Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry and Edna Holt in this groundbreaking concert film that’s packed with the Talking Heads’ most memorable songs. Shot over three concert performances in LA in December 1983, Demme’s creative genius and the band’s explosive energy is what makes this film an exhilarating and exciting event. Wall-to-wall music, beautiful cinematography and the legendary “Big Suit” make this “one of the greatest rock movies ever made” (Rolling Stone).
