In Turin, appointment with the Seeyousound Music Film Festival

Listen to the audio version of the article

Around ninety screenings, including feature films, short films, documentaries and video clips, at the tenth edition of the Seeyousound Music Film Festival, in Turin. The Italian preview of a film dedicated to Cindy Lauper opens; from Brazil a documentary on the magical meeting between a giant like Tom Jobim and the singer Elis Regina. In Milan instead the frontiers of the performing arts, at the FOG festival at the Triennale. Instead, in Rome we discover what great authors of the twentieth century wrote for cello and piano.


From 23 February to 3 March at Cinema Massimo the 10th edition of the Seeyousound Music Film Festival, the only festival in Italy entirely dedicated to music-themed cinema. Ninety screenings, including feature films, short films, documentaries and video clips. One film will be presented as an absolute premiere and thirty Italian previews, in the competitive sections Long Play Doc (documentaries), Long Play Feature (feature films), 7Inch (short films), Soundies (video clips) and Frequencies (sound recordings) and in out-of-competition shows Rising Sound, an exploration of music as a fuse for political and cultural transformations, and Into the Groove, a section with a pop spirit, which will open with the Italian preview of “Let The Canary Sing”, dedicated to Cindy Lauper. Live shows, performances, installations, DJ sets, masterclasses, conversations and exhibitions are a corollary at the Circolo del Design at the Mole Antonelliana. In the Long Play Doc section we remember among others “Elis&Tom”, by Roberto De Oliveira and Jom Tob Azulay, which investigates the intense artistic relationship between Tom Jobim, bossa nova giant, and Elis Regina, then the most famous singer in Brazil, during the recording of what would become one of the key albums of all time (24 February at 3.45pm, 1 March at 6.15pm).

On the 20th at the Teatro della Triennale we listen to “Speaking cables” – a hypnotic performance created by sound artist and harmonica singer Agnese Banti, within her compositional research inspired by Beckett’s theater and Cage’s music. It is part of the seventh edition of FOG Triennale Milano Performing Arts, the festival dedicated to the exploration of the new frontiers of theatre, dance, performance and music. Thirty-six appointments, until May 7th. A radical festival, which rejects genre and style labels to cross contemporary languages.


The third edition of Violoncello Svelato will begin on the 16th at the Sala Casella, the festival of the Accademia Filarmonica Romana dedicated to the rediscovery of the lesser-known repertoire for cello and piano. We will thus have the excellent opportunity to listen, in the opening concert, to the Sonata in D minor by Gian Francesco Malipiero, written between 1907 and 1908, in dialogue with the more famous Sonatas for cello and piano by Debussy and Shostakovich; performers Chiara and Valentina Kaufman (cello and piano). Rai RadioTre will broadcast the concerts subsequently.
