East End Film Festival 2010
Amid this year’s programme there’s a David Byrne Night (April 26th, see below for more) celebrating his strong Brazilian connections, with films True Stories and ÎLé Al Yé and some live music too at Village Underground.
6.30pm – 8.00pm
True Stories (US 1986, David Byrne, 90 min) is Byrne’s visit to a fictional Texas town to meet local colourful characters with a unique homegrown, Americana-style surrealism and folk-art.
8.00pm – 2.00am
ÎLé AIYé [The House of Life] (US 1989, David Byrne, 54 min) is Byrne’s breathtaking impressionistic docu-poem on Candomblé, the Brazilian spirit cult of the Bahia region with its life-affirming rituals, rhythms, music, dress and culture.
With live music from mischievous four-piece Django Django with their Talking Heads and ESG inspired psychedelic art pop, and Mat Motte.
