As part of the global celebrations for the International Jazz Day, we present Louis Malle’s brash and mesmerising debut, featuring Miles Davis’s legendary score. ‘Nouvelle Vague’ before such a concept truly existed, this richly atmospheric thriller of murder and mistaken identity unfolds over one restless Parisian night. A preposterous slice of noir-suspense starring Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet.
The screening will be preceded by an exclusive live set inspired by Miles Davis’ soundtrack for the film, performed by Julien Alour in duo with a double bassist.
Julien Alour is a Miles-influenced Paris-based trumpeter who’s at the forefront of an exciting new jazz generation in France. He is the trumpeter in renowned pianist Eric Legnini’s band.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Julien Alour and jazz experts.Tickets for screening
