Jazzinema is sure to transform every July into a must for jazz and film lovers. We’ll be back in 2017 — once again in collaboration with Heineken Jazzaldia and Zinemaldia — with a major preview: Django by Etienne Comar opened the Berlinale 2017 and doesn’t limit itself to highlighting the enormous talent of the Franco-Belgian guitarist, but contextualises it in a moment of fascist loathing towards his gypsy origins. Sweet and Lowdown (1999) from Woody Allen traces an attractive parallel, since Sean Penn’s character is obsessed with Django Reinhardt. If Allen is an American filmmaker especially interested in jazz, his European counterparts would be Fernando Trueba and Bertrand Tavernier. The first will join us to personally present his homage to Latin jazz, Calle 54 (2000), as well as what he considers his favourite film in this area: The Connection (Shirley Clarke, 1962). The New York director achieved a film that didn’t merely talk about jazz but that ‘was’ jazz. Round Midnight (1986), already a classic from maestro Tavernier, will close out the second edition of Jazzinema.
