Check Out This Cool Poster for Paul Thomas Anderson's Doc 'Junun'
Premiering at the New York Film Festival tonight is the new documentary from Paul Thomas Anderson. Yep, he made a documentary in the last year, but it's only 54 minutes long (more, more!). The doc is about his friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood, who he follows to the Mehrangarh Fort in India to be hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Greenwood was there to record an album with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur, and an amazing group of local artists. The doc is said to capture that experience and the music and is "pure magic". Check out this fan-made poster art made to look like a vintage portrait of the Maharaja.
In Spring 2015 Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and 'The Rajasthan Express' were hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur at Mehrangarh Fort. This beautiful and joyously unique 3 week union resulted in the album and film JUNUN (madness of love). The New York Film Festival calls it "pure magic. Junun lives and breathes music, music-making, and the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration. It’s a lovely impressionistic mosaic and a one-of-a-kind sonic experience: the music will blow your mind." The 54 minute documentary is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who is joined by his close friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood. After premiering at NYFF, Junun will premiere online at MUBI.

I'm pumped. My hopes are pretty high. I like that these two work together.

Woah. Cool. Anderson seems to have an interest in Indians and their culture.
