Jarmusch at ATP

Sep 24, 2009

For the second year in a row, Barry Hogan and Deborah Kee Higgins, the organizers of All Tomorrow’s Parties, the committedly independent, globe-trotting music festival, invited the Criterion Collection staff to build an HD cinema for the event’s U.S. venue, Kutsher’s Country Club in New York’s Catskill Mountains. Director Jim Jarmusch came upstate for the music program, which included shows by the Flaming Lips, Suicide, Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, Deerhunter, and Boris, but when Criterion screened his 1989 Mystery Train, Jim stopped by to talk to the crowd, which included the Lips’ Wayne Coyne. We got it all on tape—here are some highlights.
