The Basque Film Archive has organised, in collaboration with San Sebastian Film Festival and the Heineken Jazzaldia, the cycle JAZZINEMA. The screenings will be held in July, on Thursdays at 19:00, at the cinema of Tabakalera in San Sebastian. We will see some titles from the marvellous symbiosis that film and jazz have created in recent decades. Chet Baker will be the protagonist of the first two sessions. We will start with that marvellous classic that Let’s get lost (Bruce Webber, 1988) has become, a documentary about the unforgettable trumpet player. The premiere on our screens of Born to be blue (Robert Budreau, 2015), with Ethan Hawke giving life to Baker, is the first summer treat. In addition, it will be presented by Miguel Martín, the director of the Heineken Jazzaldia.
The other protagonist of the month is Miles Davis. It is always a good moment to listen to the legendary soundtrack by Davis for Ascenseur pour l’échafaud by Louis Malle (Elevator to the Gallows, 1957). And to finish off, the last gift, another absolute premiere, Miles Ahead (Don Cheadle, 2015), with a Don Cheadle who reinvents the figure of Miles Davis through the directing and acting. This session will also be presented by Miguel Martín.
JAZZINEMA is a cycle that aims to return to the Basque Film Archive every July. There are more than enough reasons.
