stuart A. staples – A new real Taken from the album ‘Arrhythmia' ‘I made the first part of this film on the way to City airport, London on 13th November 2015. We were on our way to Skibbereen in County Cork to celebrate my 50th birthday with friends. Later that night would be the Paris attacks and the madness of tracking down loved ones. But for this moment, a glass roofed taxi in the rain on my way to a place and people I love was a special moment. The song arrived on Christmas day 2016, but I felt the connection straight away.’ Stuart also announces a solo concert at ‘Chapelle de la Trinité, Lyon.

Stuart at The Viennale. On my way to Vienna. Somehow found myself with 3 films to represent at this years Viennale. Happy that 'Minute bodies' has 2 screenings, but also Claire Denis' latest 'Un beau soleil interieur', with the great Juliette Binoche, and our late friend Christophe Agou's beautiful posthumous documentary 'Sans Adieu' will both receive their Austrian premieres there also. I will making Q & A sessions after some screenings and will be 'in conversation' on Sunday evening about my approach to music and film. All times and venues are here https://www.viennale.at/en
Displaced. A documentary film by Volkan Uce. Music by David Boulter. The title of this film is taken from Charles Bukowski’s eponymous poem. One of its lines is: “I am not like other people. Other people are like other people.” The young people in Volkan Üce’s “Displaced” know the experience of being different and without a home Bukowski talks about. Sinan, Şule, Orhan and Bahar spent their childhood and youth in Belgium and the Netherlands before they moved (back) to Istanbul, their grandparents’ home country. But even in the city they love so much they are strangers at first. Over a period of four years – from 2011 to 2015 – Üce follows the Belgian-Turkish or Dutch-Turkish migrants on their quest for identity, jobs and personal happiness. In the face of the political upheavals in Turkey, their European socialisation takes on a different significance. While Orhan sides with Erdoğan, taking part in the Gezi protests becomes a meaningful experience and a way to find his place in society for Sinan: “Gezi is ours. Istanbul is ours. The lightbulb has bursted”, the writing on the wall reads. More info, trailer & screenings here: https://films2017.dok-leipzig.de/en/film/?ID=17037&title=Displaced
