Lift to the Scaffold + Q&A

Lift to the Scaffold + Q&A

As part of the global celebrations for the International Jazz Day, Institut Français presents Louis Malle’s mesmerising debut film, “Ascenseur pour l’échafaud” (Lift to the Scaffold) featuring Miles Davis’s legendary score. ‘Nouvelle Vague’ before such a concept truly existed, this richly atmospheric thriller of murder and mistaken identity unfolds over one restless Parisian night.

Preceded by live music by jazz multi-instrumentalist Julien Alour and followed by a Q&A with jazz specialists Selwyn Harris (Jazzwise Magazine) and Kevin Le Gendre (Jazzwise Magazine and BBC Radio 3)
