Ride, Rise, Roar is a documentary film chronicling the Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno Tour conducted by David Byrne in 2008–2009.

The film was released to the 2010 film festival circuit,[1] with the debut at South by Southwest on March 15, 2010,[2] where it was screened in all three media categories—film, interactive, and music.[3] The film is the feature-length directorial debut by Hillman Curtis[4]—who also worked on the short film that accompanies the deluxe edition of the Byrne–Eno album Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.[5] The film includes concert footage, footage of the planning and rehearsals for the tour, and exclusive interviews with Byrne, Eno, and the supporting musicians and dancers.[6]

Curtis initially proposed documenting the tour with no clear objective for the film and decided to focus on the collaboration between Byrne and his tour mates as well as the unique challenge of combining popular music with modern dance.[7]



The movie includes performances of the following songs:
