Eno is the world’s first generative cinematic documentary and, like a musical performance that’s different every night, Hustwit –appearing live in the cinema – creates a different viewing experience for each audience.

Using a proprietary software system developed by Hustwit and digital artist Brendan Dawes, the film has millions of possible variations of scenes and footage drawn from Hustwit’s original interviews and Eno’s rich archive of hundreds of hours of never-before-seen footage and unreleased music.

The result is a film that resonates with Eno’s own artistic practice, his methods of using technology to compose music, and his endless deep-dive into the mercurial essence of creativity.
