Film Screening: Tous les Matins du Monde
Part 1: Festival of the Sun King
In collaboration with Sands Films Studios, part 1 of Hex's series 'Festival of the Sun King':
December 1991: the French film world was swept off its feet by a single event, the the release of the film 'Tous les Matins du Monde'. An intimist film in which the star role was played by… music, the music of a forgotten master, Mr de Sainte Colombe and his disciple Marin Marais. Surpassing all expectations, the film was an immediate success and for two weeks held its own at the box office against two powerful “machines” of the American cinema, Terminator 2 and Bernard and Bianca, – it was, after all, the Christmas period! The soundtrack of the film immediately followed suit and made its way into the charts and other all-category best-sellers, just behind Michael Jackson and ahead of Queen…
It was an incredible success which justly rewarded the fruit of a close collaboration among three great artists, all of them lovers of early music, who had taken on the challenge of making music the very crux of a film : the director, Alain Corneau, the writer and author of the screenplay, Pascal Quignard and above all Jordi Savall, the musical director and performer of the soundtrack. The film scooped up 7 Césars – including the award for the best film music, which went to Jordi Savall – and received numerous international awards for the soundtrack.
This screening is paired with an in-person and live-streamed concert by Hex featuring music from and inspired by the film on the 1st of June, also at Sands Films Studios.
