Special Sounds and Colours London Screening of Esperando el Tsunami

By 27 November, 2011

Esperando el Tsunami is the new film from French film-maker Vincent Moon and Argentine/Colombian folk duo Lulacruza. The film documents their journey through Colombia meeting many of the country’s finest musicians while also discovering this country in all of it’s glory, revelling in the nature and the people that they meet along the way. On December 8th Sounds and Colours will be hosting a special screening of the film, and want to know whether you fancy coming along.

Esperando el Tsunami (Waiting for the Tsunami) is a quest for the sounds and people of present-day Colombia, in a continuous improvisation by the filmmaker and musicians as they composed and created on the road. On that journey they met musicians such as Teto Ocampo, Son Palenque, Aterciopelados and Frente Cumbiero, making this film a must-see for anyone interested in Colombia and/or Colombian music.

We will be screening the film in collaboration with a London-based charity called IRMO on December 8th at 7.30pm at a London venue called Fotosynthesis London. The screening will be free entry but there are limited spaces, so if you are interested in coming to the screening please send us an email to [email protected] so that we can confirm your attendance.

If you are unable to make that screening we will be doing another in the new year, at a bigger venue, with live music too, so don’t fret! We are working out the details of that screening now so keep checking back for more information.
