Upcoming Music Documentaries to Premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2024

Devo, Brian Eno, Lollapalooza, Luther Vandross…

According to the announcement from The Sundance Institute, the 2024 Sundance Film Festival will include music documentaries on Brian Eno, Lollapalooza, Luther Vandross, Devo, and how rap lyrics have played a role in court cases.

Eno is a new film from Gary Hustwit, the documentarian behind Helvetica, Objectified, and Urbanized. The movie about Brian Eno’s career and creative process is described as featuring “groundbreaking generative technology,” which makes it a different viewing experience every time it’s shown.

The three-part limited series Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza is directed and produced by Michael John Warren. The first two parts will be screened both at the festival and online

The Devo documentary, the first-ever fully authorized film about the band, was previously announced; it will be directed by Chris Smith. Luther: Never Too Much looks at the career of Luther Vandross. It’s directed by Dawn Porter.

Other premieres include As We Speak, the J.M. Harper–directed documentary about “the growing weaponization of rap lyrics in the United States criminal justice system and abroad.” Kneecap tells the story of the Belfast rap trio. The soundtrack to a Coup d’Etat from director Johan Grimonprez looks at Abbey Lincoln, Max Roach, and Louis Armstrong’s roles in 1960s international diplomacy.

This is just a small taste of the many music documentaries that will show at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival, which takes place January 18th-28th.
