DocFest: Faith i Branko documentary

Special screening + Q&A

UK 2021, 82 mins, music

Special screening and  Q&A.


The opening documentary for this year's DocFest in the aftermath of their successful performance of the Faith i Branko Quartet at Kino-Teatr. Premiered this year at the DocFest at Sheffield, the film chronicles  the personal and professional relationship of British accordionist Faith Elliott and Serbian Roma violinist Branko Ristic, a married couple who are also part of a musical combo. Director Catherine Harte spent seven years with Faith and Branko, observing as their relationship turned into a career, but not without some hardships along the way.


Faith had travelled to Serbia in the hope of recruiting gypsy musicians for a band. She became smitten with the shy Branko, who doesn’t speak much English but has played violin from the age of five and became a virtuoso musician.  After they married, Branko and Faith headed to England as the band developed an international following on the road.

DocFest: The Wall of Shadows + Q&A

 Poland/Germany/Switzerland 2020, PG, 94 mins

The UK premiere of  The Wall of Shadows with a special Q&A with director Director Eliza Kubarska and producer Monika Braid

When a Sherpa family is asked by a group of westerners to lead a trek up the never-conquered east wall of the  Kumbhakarna Mountain in Nepal, they’re confronted with a dilemma. Not only is the summit reputed to be more challenging than Mount Everest, but according to the local Kirant religion, it’s a sacred mountain that is not supposed to be ascended. While the father would like to earn the money necessary for his son’s education, the mother is adamant that they shouldn’t hike God’s body. Director Eliza Kubarska follows the expedition after the family agrees to guide the three foreigners, negotiating as best they can the pressure to finish the climb, the dangerous conditions and their own religious beliefs.

DocFest: The Most Beautiful Boy in the World

 Sweden 2021, 15, 93 mins 

A 2021 documentary film about Björn Andrésen and the effects of fame thrust upon him when he appeared in Luchino Visconti's 1971 film, Death in Venice. Andrésen was just 16 when the film came out, and was unprepared for instantly becoming an international celebrity.

'It would be nice to think Visconti was like Wilde’s Lord Henry Wootton, passionately engaged with and exalted by Dorian Gray’s beauty. Instead, Visconti seems to have shrugged and moved on to the next thing, leaving Andrésen to a chaotic afterlife of recording pop songs in Japan.’ Four stars - The Guardian

‘His film has real purpose as it examines societal attitudes to beauty and exploitation' Screen Daily

DocFest: All My Life's Buried Here: The Story of George Butterworth + Director Stewart Hajdukiewicz Q&A

UK 2019, 97 mins

The film tells the story of the English composer, folk song collector and country dancer George Butterworth who was killed during the Battle of the Somme aged just 31. 

George Butterworth was a leading member of a radical group of composers in the Edwardian years whose music was profoundly influenced by the traditional music of the English rural working class. On his death Butterworth left behind a glowing reputation and a handful of exceptional musical compositions, including such still-popular works as 'The Banks of Green Willow' and 'Rhapsody, 'A Shropshire Lad'' and impressive personal collection of over 300 English folk songs, tunes and dances. 

 

Now, a century on and for the first time in a documentary film, with a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival material & evocative new footage, using the testimony of his contemporaries, expert commentators and music by a host of talented singers and musicians, it is time to tell George Butterworth's story, listen to his music afresh and reconsider his brief but remarkable life.

DocFest: Roger Hubbard: A Documentary

UK 2021, 45 mins, music

Directed by a Rye Director Joe Snelling, this is the story of Brighton born, Hastings based musician Roger Hubbard, one of the major exponents of early blues and slide guitar. In the 1960s he started his own blues clubs in Lewes and Brighton where, along with regulars, Sam Mitchell and Dick Wardell, there were guest performances by Jo-Ann Kelly, Dave Kelly, Simon Prager, Steve Rye, Bob Hall and Graham Hine and Andy Fernbach.

 

Roger Hubbard’s first album ‘BrightBlues’, recorded by Nick Perls for his US label Blue Goose in 1970, gained critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, leading Rolling Stone writer Timothy Ferris to suggest ‘he could be one of the most exciting acoustic guitarists to come along since John Fahey’.

 

During the course of his exceptionally successful career, Roger has worked closely with big names such as Eric Clapton, John Lennon, David Bowie & Chris Rea  This fascinating, intimate documentary reflects on the musician’s life and charts what happens next!

DocFest: M.C.Escher - Journey To Infinity 

Holland 2018, PG, 81 mins

M.C. Escher: Journey To Infinity is the story of world famous Dutch graphic artist M.C Escher (1898-1972).  Part history, part psychology and psychedelia, Robin Lutz’s entertaining, eye-opening portrait gives us the man through his own words and images: diary musings, excerpts from lectures, correspondence and more are voiced by the great Stephen Fry, while Escher’s woodcuts, lithographs and other print works appear in both original and playfully altered form.

‘The film very usefully shows how he was a passionate romantic at heart, and how his work was shaped by his initial, abandoned training as an architect, his European travels as a young man, his rapture at the dense architecture of small Italian towns, the intricately recurring tiled motifs of the Alhambra in Spain, and the music of JS Bach’ Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian

Santiago Rising - film poster.jpg

DocFest: Santiago Rising + Q&A with director Nick MacWilliam

UK 2021, 15, 89 mins, subtitles in English & Spanish

A 2021 documentary that chronicles the Chilean capital's massive protests in late 2019 over the economic inequality engulfing the country. Filmed during the weeks after the protests began, Santiago Rising meets social movements, protesters and ordinary people in their struggle for equality and human rights. The film charts the build-up to the historic vote, in October 2020, that saw Chileans vote for a new constitution to replace the one imposed during the brutal Pinochet dictatorship.

 

Santiago Rising emphasises the prominent role of music and art in political dissent. We also see the state’s attempts to crush the protest movement through a violent police crackdown. Although the odds are stacked against them, Chileans find strength in unity as they fight to overcome Pinochet’s enduring legacy.

 

Directed and produced by Nick MacWilliam. Co-Producer Pablo Navarrete. Associate Producer Marcella Via.

Josephine Davies 4.jpg

Josephine Davies (saxophone) with James Maddren (drums) & Ollie Brice (double bass)

Winner of the 2019 Parliamentary Award ‘Jazz Instrumentalist of the year’, Josephine Davies is a musical artist at the forefront of the UK contemporary music scene, pushing the boundaries of jazz with her current main artistic project Satori – a sax/bass/drums trio with an emphasis on extended and collaborative improvisation.

 

It is a project that combines her seeking of freedom of expression with her interest in Japanese philosophy and lifestyle. Now becoming equally known as a composer, her unique voice is a blend of classical, jazz and folk music, creating an intensely dynamic sound infused with the Nordic quality of her Shetland roots.

 

Deeply influenced by the American composer Maria Schneider, Josephine was resident composer and tenor player for the London Jazz Orchestra from 2011-2016, and now has her own big band ‘The Enso Ensemble’.

 

As a saxophonist she is known for her melodic focus, versatility and unique style which has been described as “consistently inventive” (Jazzwise Magazine), “strong and authoritative” (The JazzMann) and “with winning immediacy” (MOJO Magazine).

The Velvet Underground 

US 2021, 15, 110 mins, music documentary

A 2021 documentary directed and produced by Todd Haynes that follows the band The Velvet Underground.

The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock ’n’ roll’s most revered bands. The film shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture.

The film features in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band's creative ethos - How to be elegant and how to be brutal.

Rebecca Youssefi : Traces 3

An interdisciplinary drawing process, combining aerial dance and fine art. The third in the Traces series, exploring themes of transformation, presence and embodied self. Rebecca performs on aerial rope, using the tail of the rope to create an ephemeral drawing on the floor.

Those observing are invited to illuminate the piece with their own torches.

 

Traces is an ongoing series, which will continue to evolve over time. Traces 1 was presented at the Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London, 2019, and Traces 2 took place at the Gulbenkian Arts Centre, Canterbury, 2020.

Hunter Muskett

Chris George, Terry Hiscock and Doug Morter formed Hunter Muskett in 1969 whilst still at college. Within a year they were signed by Decca producer Kim Margolis and booked into the company’s West Hampstead studios alongside bassist Danny Thompson. The album ‘Every Time You Move’ Decca Nova SDN20 (vinyl only) was released in October 1970. The trio, complemented by bass and strings, played acoustic guitars on all 12 tracks, 11 of which were band originals. Over time albums on the Decca Nova label gained ‘collectable’ status; of these ‘Every Time You Move’ was the rarest.

 

With the coming of the internet a number of bootlegs duly appeared. Finally in 2009, Cherry Red records released the first official CD of the album. Then in 2010, the four Musketteers decided to meet up again for the first time in 30-odd years and a ‘one-off’ performance was arranged at The Aspinall Arms near Clitheroe. This led to new dates, new songs and another album ‘That Was Then, This Is Now’ (Limefield, 2013).  The new CD was made at Limefield Studio, Manchester, helped along by the likes of Paul Burgess, Jerry Donahue and Ray Jackson. Ten of the eleven songs were band originals.

The Whalebone Box - With Live Soundtrack

For one night only - with live soundtrack by Andrew & Eden Kötting, Oliver Cherer, Riz Maslen & Simon Charterton.

The compelling tale of a quest to return an artwork to the Outer Hebrides after 30 years.

***** Fantastically-inventive arthouse production.
***** With such a tender, beating heart, this is in some ways Kötting's most unexpectedly accessible work.
***** Intriguing, sometimes baffling, a bit preposterous, but pregnant with ideas.
***** Even when Kötting is at his most mannered there's still something magnetic about his work.
***** The Whalebone Box weaves a hypnotic tapestry of the mystical and the mundane, of the power of legend and the impact of man upon his environment.

Metropolis - Film with Live Soundtrack

Germany 1927,  PG, 150 mins

Music by the Slug Sonics Electric Orchestra

Generally considered the first great science-fiction film, Metropolis (1927) fixed
for the rest of the century the image of a futuristic city as a hell of scientific progress and human despair. From this film, in various ways, descended not only Dark City but Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Escape from L.A. and Batman’s Gotham City.  The laboratory of its evil genius, Rotwang, created the look of a mad scientist for decades to come, especially after it was mirrored in Bride of
Frankenstine (1935). And the device of ‘False Maria’, the robot who looks human , inspired the replicants of Blade Runner. Even Rotwang’s artificial hand was given homage in Dr Strangelove.

Director Fritz Lang. Staring Brigitte Helm, Alfred Abel, Gustav Frohlich & Rudolf Kline - Rogge.

SOUNDTRACK 2021
An original composition by Slug Sonics performed live by the Slug Sonics Electric Orchestra, featuring Sir Eddie Real, Corin Pennington. An organic and mechanised meeting of classical and contemporary electronic instrumentation transforming the classic 1927 film into the twenty first century.

The Film will be shown in two parts with a twenty minute interlude.

Ålesund return with ‘A Thread In The Dark’, a follow up to 2020’s ‘All Hail to Your Queen’.

 

Following the untimely curtailing of their European Tour in Spring 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, they came back home and used the lockdown as a time to write, demo up new ideas and record a four track EP.

Throughout the EP Alba’s intoxicating vocals take on totally different auras that interchange based on the musical landscapes they’re placed against; soaring atmospheric synth-laden soundscapes, shimmering guitars and tantalising grooves.

‘Imagine a London Grammar and Florence + The Machine hybrid. Got it? Now add ethereal, Nordic imagery similar to that of AURORA, and you’re left with the atmospheric marvel that is Ålesund’ – Darlingzine

Mémoires d'un Amnésique

A piano, a film  and Eric Satie in his own words.

Alexander Metcalfe

Mémoires d'un Amnésique: A piano, a film and Erik Satie, in his own words 

is, in equal parts, a piano recital, a one-man play and a surrealist film, amalgamated into a unique theatrical experience. 

 

Alex Metcalfe performs Satie's most important works, in character as the composer from the set of his Arceuil apartment. Sarah Miles’s script, edited from Satie's own words, is narrated against the backdrop of Keith Lovegrove's cinematic accompaniment.

Satie, who died in a Paris hospital on July 1st, 1925, was perhaps the most intriguing and eccentric of all the great composers. For a long period of his life, his wardrobe consisted of seven identical velvet suits, awarding him the title of The Velvet Gentleman. His music, including the famous Gymnopédies  and Gnossiennes, was to have a profound effect on generations to come. 

Narrated in French, with English subtitles. (approx. 65 minutes)
