The premiere for my newest film, Alors, t’as soif de quoi (avec Mahogany Frog), will be held at the Winnipeg Cinematheque (100 Arthur St.) on Saturday, March 16th at 4pm. The film plays as part of the Gimme Some Truth festival of documentary film! I’m thrilled to finally show this film after nearly three years spent working on it. Thanks so much to Mahogany Frog who were gracious enough to trust me with making this film and everyone at the Winnipeg Film Group and Gimme Some Truth who’ve supported me along the way. Hope you all can make it out!
Here’s the synopsis for the film followed by a trailer and a link to the Gimme Some Truth website:
Together for 15 years and having recorded six studio albums, Winnipeg’s Mahogany Frog is one of the best bands you’ve never heard. Alors, t’as soif de quoi? documents the band on stage as well as off as they try to reconcile lofty dreams of rock stardom with an uncompromising need to create music that is decidedly not radio friendly or mainstream. Their special brand of visceral face-melting instrumental psychedelic jazz-rock is the product of an endless love for pushing artistic boundaries and a steadfast determination not to sell out. Set your synths to stun.
