    Paul Thomas Anderson's New Film "Junun" Featuring Jonny Greenwood, Shye Ben Tzur to Debut Exclusively on MUBI
    Shin Katan

    Following its October 8 opening at the New York Film Festival, Paul Thomas Anderson's new film, Junun, will have its exclusive worldwide premiere on MUBI on October 9.

    Earlier this year, Paul Thomas Anderson joined his close friend and collaborator Jonny Greenwood and Israeli musician, composer, and poet Shye Ben Tzur on a trip to Rajasthan in Northwestern India, where they were hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur. Their destination was the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort, where Greenwood (with the help of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich) and a group of musicians called from across the Indian sub-continent worked on Ben Tzur's album, which will be released by Nonesuch in November. Additional details and pre-orders on the album will be announced shortly.

    The band assembled a make-shift studio at the fort and over the following three weeks created the collaboration that becomes the music and film of Junun (an alternate spelling of "junoon," the Arabic, Persian, Urdu, and Hindi word for "mania," or "the madness of love"). The results deliver the close camaraderie of artistic collaboration and a sonic, visual and sensory experience that capture the imagination.

    On the deal, MUBI Founder and CEO Efe Cakarel said: "The founding vision of MUBI was to build a place where a director such as Paul Thomas Anderson could premiere a unique film like Junun. To be here today is not only an honor and a significant milestone but a realization of everything we dreamed of in the beginning."

    Paul Thomas Anderson added: "We're huge fans of MUBI and wanted to be a part of what they do. Hopefully people will discover both the music that's been made by Shye and Jonny and a great place to watch films."

    MUBI is a curated online cinema where members can stream cult, classic, and award-winning films instantly. Available in over 200 territories around the globe, MUBI allows members to watch movies on their PC, Mac, Smart TV, taking great cinema wherever they go and downloading films to watch offline via mobile apps.

    "Laurie Anderson Has a Message for Us Humans," Sam Anderson's New York Times Magazine feature on Laurie Anderson in last week's issue of the magazine, is today's episode of The Sunday Read from the Times podcast The Daily. Before reading his article, the writer conveys five questions Laurie Anderson had shared with him, "a sort of test that uses to figure out whether a piece that she's working on is good or not ... 'Is it complicated enough? Is it simple enough? Is it crazy enough? Is it beautiful enough? And finally, Is it stupid enough?' And I thought that was kind of a great criteria for proceeding with life, with whatever you are doing."
