Watch the Trailer for Jonny Greenwood + Paul Thomas Anderson’s Documentary ‘Junun’
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and director Paul Thomas Anderson spent last spring in Ragasthan, India, filming a new documentary that makes its worldwide premiere today (Oct. 9). Check out the trailer for Junun up above.
The Anderson-directed Junun captures Greenwood, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur collaborating with a local Indian music collective called the Rajasthan Express. Together, they composed a “junun,” which is Hindi for “the madness of love.”
The film premiered at the New York Film Festival just yesterday, and today, it is available for streaming on MUBI.
“We’re huge fans of MUBI and wanted to be a part of what they do,” Anderson told Rolling Stone. “Hopefully people will discover both the music that’s been made by Shye and Jonny and a great place to watch films.”
The corresponding, Godrich-produced Junun album is slated for a Nov. 13 release via Nonesuch Records. That's the album artwork below:
Greenwood and Anderson are frequent collaborators. The Radiohead guitarist has scored three of Anderson’s films: 2007’s There Will Be Blood, 2012’s The Master and last year’s Inherent Vice.
