Hot Club of San Francisco - Cinema Vivant
Friday, March 03, 2017    7pm
Price $68 / $48 / $38 / $20
Imagine yourself in the idyllic French countryside in the 1930's. Sometime before dark, a gypsy caravan sets up camp in a field outside of town, luring the locals out for an evening’s fun. The wanderers travel with a film projector, pointing it at the side of a barn. As the images flicker to life beneath the stars, gypsy musicians play their guitars and fiddles, matching every movement on the screen with characteristic virtuosity, passion and humor. Reviving this lost entertainment; The Hot Club of San Francisco presents Cinema Vivant, an evening of vintage silent films accompanied by live gypsy swing. It is a celebration of imagination and innovation.

The Hot Club of San Francisco is an ensemble of accomplished and versatile musicians celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering Quintette du Hot Club de France. The ensemble borrows the all-string instrumentation of violin, bass, and guitars from the original Hot Club, but breathes new life into the music with innovative arrangements and original compositions.

Films Being Screened:
There It Is, Charley Bowers (1928)
The Cameraman's Revenge, Ladislaw Starewicz (1912)
The Mascot, Ladislaw Starewicz (1933)

This performance is made possible by generous sponsorship from 
Mike & Ruth Bernstone, Phillip & JoAnn Conley, Hawaii Trust & Estate Counsel, Jon Staub & Jefferson Finney, Kona Brewing Co., and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
