Flashbacks

The silent film by writer and poet Mário Peixoto was and is admired by film greats. Peixoto was inspired by a photo by André Kertész of two handcuffed male hands around the neck of a woman staring straight into the camera. That one photo led to the gloomy story of a man and two women lost in a rowing boat at sea. Flashbacks unfold the history of the trio. The film was almost forgotten, but after rigorous restoration, it can be shown again.

New sound

With a new acquaintance comes a new sound, thought the Brazilian giants of Met�� Metá, who play a mix of jazz, rock, samba and candomblé rhythms. Moreover, the band likes to look beyond the boundaries of its discipline. It earned Juçara Marçal (vocals), Kiko Dinucci (guitar) and Thiago França (saxophone) several Brazilian music awards and the admiration of Christiane Jatahy, associate artist of the Holland Festival. Together with Andy Moor and Terrie from the Dutch band The Ex, which they admire, they play and improvise their own brand-new soundtrack for the film.
