    Eno (2024)

    Peeing on a famous work of art. Killing flies. Passing on working with Joni Mitchell. All core moments in Eno, the new documentary about musical maverick Brian Eno, that you may never see. Or you might. Inspired by Eno’s own generative compositions, documentarian Gary Hustwit created a self-editing movie that rebuilds itself for every screening from a massive and growing archive of library footage and original interviews. No two screenings will be the same, but this night at AFS Cinema will be especially unique, as Hustwit will be present for a post-screening Q&A and discussion of this radical rejection of the director as all-knowing force. – Richard Whittaker
