BELFAST INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL & QFT50 PRESENT:
A unique screening with live accompaniment by Raymond MacDonald and Christian Ferlaino (Saxophone and percussion) to create a dynamic reinterpretation of Mazzetti’s groundbreaking film Together (Best Avantgarde Film, Cannes Film Festival 1956).
This dialogue-free film was part of the British ‘Free Cinema’ movement and stars artists Eduardo Paolozzi and Michael Andrews as two D/deaf and non-verbal dockers living in London’s post-war East End.
This new live score is commissioned by the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival, part of Falkirk Community Trust.
The film’s refreshing style offers a unique portrayal of everyday working-class life through the eyes of the two leads. An introduction and post-screening Q&A will be enhanced by BSL interpretation and electronic note-taking for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.
Total event duration: 1h 20m approx.
This event is part of the Belfast International Arts Festival and QFT50.
If ever a film embodied the anarchic, irreverent spirit of Belfast then Good Vibrations is it.
CINEMAGIC & QFT50 PRESENT:
How Does It Feel? - A Life of Musical Misadventures
Mark Kermode recounts his utterly foolhardy attempts to fulfil his dreams of becoming a pop star - from building an electric guitar from scratch while at school, to playing tea-chest bass on the kids TV show 'Utterly Brilliant', to becoming the musical director of a major TV show - all without ever learning to read music.
