ROCK + CINEMA = 68
SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL by Jean-Luc Godard
SHANTEL dj session
THE VR HACKATHON CONTEST BEGINS
The Trieste Film Festival 29th edition opens at Teatro Miela with a musical event, a 360° exploration of music and cinema of the year 1968. As a prequel to the focus dedicated to 1968, there is a meeting to understand the cultural, musical and cinematographic atmosphere that characterised the (film) Revolution. The film critic on the radio programme Hollywood Party Steve Della Casa, together with the music critic and prestigious journalist at the Corriere della Sera Mario Luzzato Fergiz will help us remember this atmosphere. The meeting is hosted by the journalist Alessandro Mezzena Lona and will introduce the documentary SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL by Jean-Luc Godard, filmed in 1968. How to destroy the traditional narrative through 10 singles takes: half on the Rolling Stones recording Sympathy for the Devil, for their seventh album Beggars Banquet, half on the revolution that does not take off, from literalist black panthers, to writings on the walls, a nazi bookseller (the producer Iain Quarrier), and Eve Democracy (Anne Wiazemsky), interviewed on the role of intellectuals and then hunted down.
Returning in Trieste after 10 years, Shantel brings the music to the opening night. The German record producer, singer and DJ has acquired international acclaim for his work with the Bucovina Club Orkestar, becoming the king of mix blending Balkan and electronic music. The DJ session starts at 10pm.
Friday is also the first day of the VR Hackaton Contest, the first “hackathon” in Italy for VR videoproduction, a non-stop 32 hour marathon, that will be held at Polo Giovani Toti to produce a 360° video in teams. The best video produced will be awarded by a panel of audiovisual experts Sunday 21st at Salone degli Incanti at 16:30 and recalled during the award ceremony on Sunday 28 at Politeama Rossetti.
Tickets for the whole day and for each event can be purchased at the Teatro Miela ticket office from 4pm.
