The docufiction “365 Paolo Fresu, il tempo del viaggio” will be screened in London on Thursday 6 November 6.30pm at the Italian Cultural Institute.

The film will be presented by the Sardinian artist Filomena Campus (who will be at My Jazz Islands Festival from 10 to 12 November at PizzaExpress Jazz Club Soho) with the special guests UK Jazz vocalist Cleveland Watkiss and Roberto Minini-Meròt.

“It uses a collective approach to describe the human and artistic figure of a great musician, narrate his experiences, his story, the world to which he belongs. The film is not just a biography or a portrait of Paolo Fresu. It portrays a multitude of feelings and elements: the memories, traditions and musical styles, the encounters that influenced him, the many places he travelled to – the towns and natural landscapes, places of artistic importance and sacred places, theatres and recording studios. All these components reveal the identity of an artist who projects his image onto another place, onto the subtle space where his internal journey unfolds and where the motivation resides. We witness dialogues and the sharing of experiences and reflections – by his friends and admirers who see him as an example to follow… Always and only in the name of music”.

The event is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute.
