Live From Upstate: Nightingales in Berlin

Starr Cinema Tickets


Sunday, April 9

Film preceded by a live performance by David Rothenberg and Lucie Vitkova and followed by a Q&A. The musician David Rothenberg gathered together an international band of musicians for a visionary experiment: how to cross the species line and make music live with nightingales. As it turns out, jamming with nightingales is easy—every tune makes them sing more. But it leads to a deeper encounter, an unanswerable question, a listening unlike any other, as Ville Tanttu’s film captures. (Finland, 2019, 52m)
