It's no secret that director Paul Thomas Anderson likes Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s music: Greenwood composed the scores for multiple Anderson films, including There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice, and the two are close friends.

Now Greenwood will emerge from the background and enter the spotlight in Anderson’s new documentary, Junun, which follows Greenwood as he travels to Rajasthan in northwest India to record an album with Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur. The film will make its world premiere at the New York Film Festival this fall. And the site of filming, according to the film festival’s website, was this incredible-looking 15th-century Indian fort:
