Duration 87' | French, English, Amhara with English subtitles
Dazzled by the surrealist movement, Francis Falceto decided at the age of 17 to live an extraordinary life. In the 1980s, co-created l'Oreille est Hardie and Le Confort Moderne in Poitiers, leaving his mark on French underground culture. A record he discovered by chance opened another important chapter in his life: Ethiopian music, of which he became a great champion. Ethiopiques Magnetic Suite is the portrait of a discreet and important man, and a dive into counterculture.
Stéphane Jourdain, CEO of La Huit Production, studied ethnomusicology before turning to film production and direction. He has directed portraits of personalities who have played a major role in the discovery and knowledge of music: Deben Bhattacharya, Rémy Kolpa Kopoul, Francis Falceto – the éminences grises of the art of sounds.
Thomas Bouet from Qwest TV, who co-produced the film, will be presenting the film and will be available for the Q&A after the screening.
