HIC + Doc’n Roll Film Fest: PURE LOVE: THE VOICE OF ELLA FITZGERALD
May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hull Independent Cinema and Doc’Roll Film Festival present: PURE LOVE: THE VOICE OF ELLA FITZGERALD
Katja Duregger | 2017 | Germany | Unrated (18+ only) | 52mins | English, and German with English subtitles
At Hull Truck Theatre
HIC is delighted to be hosting Doc’Roll Film Festival, the UK’s celebration of music documentaries, for a second year. Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
Focusing on the phenomenon of her extraordinary voice, this film pays tribute to The First Lady of Song – Ella Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald’s voice is a phenomenon and unrivalled to this day. Duregger unravels the secret of Fitzgerald’s voice via insights from singers Dianne Reeves and Dee Dee Bridgewater, jazz drummer and producer Terri Lyne Carrington, jazz violinist Regina Carter, author Tad Hershorn and the eminent jazz critic Will Friedwald, among others. They describe the impact her voice had and continues to have on their lives.
Hull Truck is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
