HippFest on Tour
With live accompaniment from Raymond MacDonald and Christian Ferlaino (saxophone
Tour Dates 2017/18
Raymond MacDonald and Christian Ferlaino perform their new score written to accompany
Italian-born Lorenza Mazzetti’s dialogue-free film ‘Together’ set in London’s East
End. The film was made without synchronised sound as part of the British ‘Free Cinema’
movement whose manifesto celebrated freedom for filmmakers from orthodoxy and conservatism.
It follows two deaf dockers in the midst of the wary, hearing community and stars
the then unknown 32 year-old Scottish artist Eduardo Paolozzi in the lead.
Introductions and post-screening Q&As will be enhanced by BSL interpretation
and electronic note-taking.

the South of Italy, in a contemporary jazz and improvised music realm.
