P.T. Anderson’s “Junun” Doco Hits NYFF

Following in the wake of Christopher Nolan’s “Quay” and Noah Baumbach’s “De Palma,” it seems another filmmaker has put together a documentary on the sly recently.

“The Master” and “Inherent Vice” helmer Paul Thomas Anderson has crafted “Junun,” a 54 minute documentary about Anderson’s regular musical collaborator Jonny Greenwood as he travels to India to record a record with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur.

The pair were hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur and the album was recorded in a 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort with a large number of famed musicians from the region.

“Junun” is slated to premiere at the New York Film Festival in October, but as for an eventual public release – no word on that as yet.
