Jim Jarmusch live
February 1 2023, 9.00pm
Running time 75'
A special preview for the sixth edition of FOG. A master of independent cinema and one of the most eclectic of American artists, Jim Jarmusch performs at Triennale as SQÜRL, a New York-based duo consisting of the director-musician and Carter Logan, film producer. A unique “synaesthetic” event, a concert-projection in which four dreamlike short films made by Man Ray are set to live music. The works of the legendary photographer, painter and cineaste – forerunner of surrealist cinema – come to life thanks to the genius of SQÜRL, among semi-improvised scores, synthesizers, guitars and loops. – L'étoile de mer (1928) – Emak Bakia (1926) – Le retour à la raison (1923) – Les mystères du Château du Dé (1929)
An American director, actor, screenwriter and musician, Jim Jarmusch is one of the most important independent filmmakers. After making his debut with Permanent Vacation (1980), he achieved success with his Stranger than Paradise (1984), which won the Caméra d’Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival. His most important works include Dead Man (1995), Ghost Dog (1999) and Coffee and Cigarettes (2003), which earned him the Short Film Palme d’Or at Cannes, Broken Flowers (2005), which won the Grand Prix at Cannes, Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) and Paterson (2016). After The Dead Don’t Die, that opened the 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival, he made his return to directing with French Water in April 2021. Made for Saint Laurent, the short film starred Julianne Moore, Chloë Sevigny and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
