A weekend of previews, feature film screenings and short live soundtracks. At the La Compagnia cinema (via Cavour, 50 / r)
"Seeyousound": from October 11th to 13th the musical theme festival debuts in Florence
Music to watch, films to listen to : this is the leitmotif of Seeyousound - International Music Film Festival , the only one in Italy dedicated to cinema with a musical theme, which landed for the first time in Florence from 11 to 13 October , at the La Compagnia cinema (via Cavour, 50 / r).
The event, born in Turin in 2015, has developed into a network of 6 festivals (Turin, Bologna, Milan, Lecce, Palermo and Florence) and offers three days in the Tuscan capital with around 20 feature film screenings, short films, video clips, all in the regional premiere, some in the national premiere, often live soundtracks, and musical moments.
The festival in the Tuscan capital will open on Friday 11 October at 9pm at the La Compagnia cinema with a screening in collaboration with the Chang Festival of the Peoples , Merian Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack, already authors of King Kong and shot five years before the legendary blockbuster. A documentary that becomes an adventure film, accompanied by live soundtrack by Projec-To , a collective suspended between electronic and visual, born in 2015 from the mind of composer Riccardo Mazza and videomaker Laura Pol .
"Chang", from 1927 is one of the first documentaries on jungle life in South East Asia ; the authors Cooper and Schoedsack took a week to reach the village and stay there for eighteen months, turning from the "real" the most dangerous situations, with a hidden camera with fixed focus (and partly reconstructing some scenes, inevitably, in seconds and thirds moments). With this work the former adventurers and future fathers of King Kong from ethnographers arrive at "fiction-making".
Seeyousound Florence is realized under the patronage of the City of Florence, the Tuscany Region and the National Cinema Museum, in collaboration with the La Compagnia cinema , Sky Arte, Festival Dei Popoli, INRI, GruVillage, with the support of Diplomatico, distributed in Italy by Compagnia of the Caribbean. The Festival is sponsored by the National Cinema Museum of Turin, European Year of Cultural Heritage, MIBAC - Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. Technical Sponsor: Nikon, Treedom, media partner My Movies.
Admission fee: full 6 euros, reduced 5 euros, subscription 20 euros. Tickets can be purchased either at the cash desk or online at www.seeyousound.org
