RADIOHEAD, THE VISIONARIES: A DECADE OF BREAKING NEW TALENT

RADIOHEAD, THE VISIONARIES: A DECADE OF BREAKING NEW TALENT
Is Radiohead the best band in the world? Well, possibly. But beyond their considerable musical gifts, Messrs. Yorke, Greenwood, Greenwood, O’Brien and Selway deserve additional notice for breaking in an astonishing amount of new filmmaking talent with their carefully constructed, always artful music videos. Since RESFEST has also always sought to champion the up-and-coming filmmaker, it made sense on the occasion of our 10th birthday to celebrate the past decade of this band’s highly distinctive body of film work. In collaboration with powerful commissioner Dilly Gent – who aided us in assembling this special collection – Radiohead has helped facilitate the ascendance of such visionary talents as Jonathan Glazer (“Street Spirit” and “Karma Police”), Chris Hopewell (“There, There”), Shynola (“Pyramid Song”) and many more. Fans of the Oxfordshire rockers will delight in the program’s hits – “No Surprises,” “Go To Sleep” and “Paranoid Android” are all featured – while also relishing the collection’s rarities, which include Monkey Hub’s animation for the acoustic “Creep,” the Vapour Brothers’ commercial-length “blips” for Kid A, videos from Radiohead TV, “Down Is the New Up” and “Video Tape” from Nigel Godrich’s From the Basement TV series, and the brand-new “Harrowdown Hill,” from Thom Yorke’s solo album, The Eraser.
