Connexions

IN PRODUCTION, AVAILABLE FOR COPRODUCTION AND PREBUY

Connexions is a documentary series that highlights the intimate relationship of an electronic music producer with airports, at night. The filming takes place in the terminals of Parisian airports.

 

 

A DJ lives at 130 beats per minute, his rhythm is dense, split and solitary at the same time. In the early morning, a trance-like audience cheers him on in a Berlin basement. Four hours by plane and a nap later, Israeli dancers are stomping their feet on a Tel Aviv beach waiting for him. These crowd baths are the submerged face of the iceberg, they make many fans dream. But these intense moments last only a brief moment, an hour or two…
Then the solitude returns at a gallop. Unlike a rock band, DJs travel between concerts alone. How do these DJs or electronic music producers use this time? Are air travels a source of inspiration? Does the excitement of an airport or its architecture make them creative? Is the airport a necessary zone of anonymity? How can we ultimately exploit these huge transit zones? Are they compatible with fatigue and jetlag?

El Salto, Jesús Carmona

In Production – Available for prebuy

Genre: Choreography, Flamenco
Format: HD

JESUS CARMONA, choreographer and principal dancer of the Spanish National Ballet for many years, has won the National Dance Award 2020 with his latest creation El Salto. Co-produced with Sadlers Wells Theatre in London, the Flamenco Biennial in Seville and the Flamenco Festival, this flamenco show is the result of elaborate and in-depth work during three artistic residencies held between March and July 2019 in New York, Miami, London and Madrid, on the theme of “gender in movement”.

“The conception of this show stems from the personal fact that made me question the relationship to masculinity in the 21st century, both from men and women. In the search for answers, I understood more deeply every day what kind of society we live in and what we can do to improve it, because some of the simpler or daily attitudes are perhaps those that need a change. I wanted to stage this personal growth with the thought that art opens the soul to a space of understanding, and with the hope of moving or opening the eyes of the most reluctant viewer to the theme suggested by the show.”
Jesus Carmona
