While You Live, Shine

While You Live, Shine

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

A moving journey deep into the oldest music in the Western world, guided by Chris King, the award-winning musicologist who has dedicated his life to understanding and preserving it. Using his collection of 78's King, the auricular raconteur takes us to Epirus, northern Greece, to experience music that dates back to pre-Christian times, which is still played there every summer. In King's words, "the music is so unpretentious and stark that I doubt that many would even regard it as music...it is more like a profound tonic or salve for our wilted spiritual wounds."

Acclaimed Irish filmmaker Paul Duane has been making films for twenty years. In 2014, he was on Variety's annual 10 Directors to Watch list. His most recent film, What Time Is Death? , follows the return of the self-exiled band, KLF.

A Bright Light - Karen and the Process

A Bright Light - Karen and the Process

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

A cinematographic essay that journeys across the United States in the footsteps of Karen Dalton, one of the 1960s most iconic voices, worshipped by her peers, but little known to the public. The cult singer was not cut out for the conventions of the industry: a prodigious musician she was first and foremost a free woman who lived on the fringe. The film - part biopic, part diary - also serves as a dialogue for the filmmaker on the creative process: its frantic and mysterious paths where reality and dreams intersperse.

Born in Lausanne, Emmanuelle Antille studied at the ESAV in Geneva and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Since 1995, she has developed her artistic practice as a video artist and film director exploring the bonds between people within a community and family. A Bright Light is her first feature-length documentary.

Sufi, Saint & Swinger

Sufi, Saint & Swinger

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

A tragic story of one man’s unique musical talent affected and conditioned by the culture, politics and expectations of American society from the 1950s and its tumultuous relationship with Iran. Music virtuoso Dr. Lloyd Miller’s life seems stranger than fiction. And adding to the strangeness is the archive film reel from a distant Iran in the 1970s, a country where he finally found acceptance and love. The film gives one last chance for Miller and Khurosh Ali Khan to be heard and exist again.

Camilla French is a British-Chinese director/producer. While in China, she made Lost in the Muqam , a film about an Uyghur musician. Andrés Borda is a writer/director from Colombia. He has directed several shorts about prominent Colombian artists, including Norman Meija. Together they set up Bardo Films and Sufi, Saint & Swinger is their first feature.

Andres Borda, Abbas Nokhasteh and musician Lloyd Miller will be joining us at WOMEX 19 and there will be a Q&A after the screening.

Indus Blues

Indus Blues

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

A multi-layered and moving portrait of Pakistan's folk music scene, its veteran musicians and instrument craftsmen who are barely surviving in an indifferent society. The film poignantly asks: is there room for traditional music in a nation embroiled in social, political and religious upheaval, along with the pressures of the colonizing pop industry? Taking us on a 1500 kilometre colourful journey along the Indus River in search of some of the oldest forms of music, Indus Blues serves to document these vital artistic treasures so that they are not lost from our collective memory.

Jawad Sharif is an award-winning filmmaker from Pakistan. He has worked on several socially and culturally sensitive film projects involving the themes of human rights and social injustice besides arts and culture. Indus Blues is his first feature documentary.

Production Country and Year US, 2019 | Produced by Michal Pietrzyk | Producers Michal Pietrzyk, David Favret, Celeste Caliri, Gabriel Bienczycki | Director of Photography Gabriel Bienczycki | Sound Jason Devore | Editor Michal Pietrzyk | Contact Michal Pietrzyk

In a gentrifying New Orleans, black artist Demond Melancon sacrifices to be Big Chief in a secret 200-year subculture known as Mardi Gras Indians: African-American men from the city's roughest neighbourhoods who spend all year sewing feathered suits they'll wear only once, in a battle to decide who's "the prettiest." The film is an intimate portrait of one man’s obsessive journey to honour the bond between runaway slave ancestors and the Native Americans who housed them during their escape.

Michal Pietrzyk was born in Poland and immigrated to the US after his father's imprisonment as a member of the anti-communist movement Solidarity. He started his career as an editor of unscripted television, graduating to a producer for National Geographic, Discovery and others. All On a Mardi Gras Day is his directorial debut.

 

I Snuck Off the Slave Ship

Production Country and Year US, 2018 | Producers Brittany Nugent, Matt Arnett | Director of Photography Charles Miller | Editor Joy Davenport | Contact Raw Music International

I Snuck Off the Slave Ship is a metaphor for African American transcendence. Lonnie Holley has been adrift across timelines for longer than he can remember. Using advanced technology of his own design, he does his best to transgress reality with his imagination, liberating the people he meets along the way, including different versions of himself. Temporal talismans guide Lonnie through the fragmented mundanities and phenomena of the Black American experience, as felt in his own life and beyond.

Cyrus Moussavi is a filmmaker, record producer, and the founder of Raw Music International, a documentary collective producing films about underground music around the world. His latest film, I Snuck Off the Slave Ship, co-directed by artist and musician Lonnie Holley , premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. He is co-owner of Mississippi Records, a label focusing on vinyl reissues and new recordings from overlooked artists across timelines.

Cyrus Moussavi will be present at WOMEX 19 and there will be a Q&A after the screening. This will be followed by a showreel of previous work by Raw Music International.

Taking Iacanga

Taking Iacanga

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

The most significant manifestation of Brazil’s underground scene, the legendary Aguas Claras music festival, was Brazil’s answer to Woodstock. Held in the 1970s and 80s, when military law banned open-air events, the festival was at the forefront of the counterculture movement in Brazil. The documentary traces the history of the festival from its humble beginnings at organiser Leivinha’s parent’s farm to Joao Gilberto performing to a haze of over 100,000 hippies going through a collective catharsis. Águas Claras shaped what Brazilian festivals would be and eclectically transformed more than a generation of music fans.

Graduate of Journalism, Thiago Mattar worked at the Brazilian Cinematheque in Sao Paulo as a shorts film curator. In 2010, Thiago directed the web documentary Laerte about a Brazilian transgender cartoonist. After 10 years of research and production, Taking Iacanga is Mattar’s first feature film.

Thiago Mattar & Deborah Osborn will be present at WOMEX 19, and there will be a Q&A after the screening.

Sarabande

Sarabande

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

Sarabande started as a personal documentary on the acclaimed Kosovar classical guitarist Petrit Çeku who, back in 2014, was about to record his take on Bach's unaccompanied Cello Suites in Spain. But then it became a road movie on borders and illegality, to later be wrapped up into a journey of two friends travelling between the invented ideas of orient and occident, past and future. Four years in the making, the poetically layered film does justice to these native nomads, imprisoned by the politics of borders.

Kaltrina Krasniqi is an award-winning Kosovo based film director and media specialist working in film, television and online publishing since 2001. She is a founding member of the Kosovo Oral History Initiative and a co-founder of the popular Prishtina cafe-bookshop Dit' e Nat'. Currently, she is in production of her first feature film Vera Dreams of the Sea .

Kaltrina Krasniqi will be present at WOMEX 19 and there will be a Q&A after the screening.

Amazonia Groove

Amazonia Groove

  • Sallittu kaikenikäisille

Born out of the rhythm of the water, the music of the Para state in the north-eastern Amazonian region of Brazil breathes mythology, faith and mysticism. The extraordinary life experiences of the protagonists, their artistic originality, musical plurality and precious oral traditions of the Amazon, together with the intangible natural force that emerges from the region, vibrate in every frame of the film. Through its artists such as Dona Onete, Manoel Cordeiro, DJ Waldo Squash to name a few, Amazonia Groove gives voice to a fundamental, yet almost unknown musical tradition that has much to reveal to us.

After studying film at UCLA, Bruno Murtinho began directing music videos, becoming one of Brazil's most innovative video directors and winning awards at VMA MTV Brazil. His feature screenplay Tom, Nina and the Lost Page was selected for the Sundance Screenwriting Lab and Director's Pitch Original Screenplays at TIFF. Amazonia Groove had its international premiere at SXSW 2019.

Bruno Murtinho and Leonardo Edde will be present at WOMEX 19 and there will be a Q&A after the screening.
