Their seminal documentary about the final days of LCD Soundsystem (“Shut Up And Play The Hits”) earned widespread critical acclaim, including selection at Sundance film festival.

In 2014 Thirtytwo directed an ambitious short film presented by “The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” as part of a three-part video series commissioned by 20th Century Fox. They also directed the Netflix comedy special “Buried Alive” starring Aziz Ansari.
