Get The Blessing present Bristopolis

— Colston Hall
GTB team up with Portishead collaborator John Minton to produce a film
time:19:30pm
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Get The Blessing is rightly famous for its hard-hitting and irreverent take on British jazz but this event brings their music’s cinematic qualities to the fore.

For this special event they team up with award-winning, long-time GTB and Portishead collaborator John Minton to produce a film which examines and celebrates over a century of Bristol, captured on film by local people.

If last year’s #Metropolis was an epic expressionist vision of dystopia, Bristopolis offers an intimate contemporary parallel: a poetic visual essay and an abstract urban history, using archive footage filtered through John Minton’s creative vision, and organically wedded to one of #Bristol’s most famous jazz exports – the inventive, uncategorisable Get The Blessing.

“…they may well be the most original and exciting band on the British scene at the moment.” Jazzwise Magazine

This event is part of the Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival. See the full 2018 line up - https://goo.gl/BtLDEE
