Ran Blake / Ricky Ford

featuring Robert Lepage
To help the Cinémathèque québécoise celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Festival has teamed up with the institute's director Robert Daudelin to put together a special concert combining film, jazz and improvisation. Pianist Ran Blake, an avid fan of the silver screen in general and Hitchcock in particular, will be on hand with sax-player Ricky Ford to offer their own renditions of some of the great jazz pieces in film history, playing sometimes with the actual footage and sometimes without. Also present will be Robert Lepage, one of the wittiest horns around, who can be counted on to provide highly entertaining running commentary reminiscent of the grand tradition of the silent movie. A fitting tribute to two mediums that came of age together in more ways than one, and a golden opportunity to highlight the important contribution of the Cinémathèque over the years.
