Ciné-Concerts SAT x Cinémathèque

La SAT, la Cinémathèque québécoise et le Partenariat du Quartier des spectacles présentent les Ciné-concerts, un programme de projections en plein air associant cinéma et musique live. Chaque film est accompagné d’une performance musicale où les artistes créent en direct une nouvelle trame sonore. Cinéphile ou mélomane, on peut s’attendre à des moments inédits de création.

En première partie seront diffusés des courts métrages sélectionnés par la Cinémathèque québécoise.

Les projections sont gratuites et auront lieu à la Place de la Paix dans le Quartier des spectacles.

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 film The Holy Mountain is a visually striking work and its intensely unusual imagery is a great fit for a live performance setting. Joe Cantrell's intention is to use these fantastical images as a visual representation of noises and sounds, similar to the music notation called the graphical score. The artist sees in the film a beautiful challenge, fitting for this graphical tradition, that promises to create impactful and memorable sonic and visual pairing.


The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky

In a corrupt, greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist leads a messianic character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment.
