Bergamo Film Meeting opens Bergamo Jazz

The unmissable passing of the torch between the two Festivals

Bergamo Film Meeting renews its collaboration with Bergamo Jazz also for 2019: the unmissable passing of the torch between the two Festivals, united by their international vocation, is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday March 17, and will be divided into two consecutive moments. The first event, at 3:30PM, will be a screening of Alfie (UK, 1966), one of the most famous and representative films of the English Free Cinema of the '60s, as well as one of the most appreciated internationally, bearing the signature of Lewis Gilbert and based on a play by Bill Naughton. The soundtrack is also worthy of note, composed and performed by one of the greatest (and still in activity) jazz saxophonists of all time: Sonny Rollins. At 6.00PM the now traditional live scoring of a silent film will take place: this time it will be Le Voyage Imaginaire (The Imaginary Voyage, 1926), a comedy by René Clair, scored by an unusual brass trio set up specifically for the occasion and including saxophonists Roger Rota and Marco Colonna , and clarinettist Francesco Chiapperini.
