If you were a fan of Whiplash at the Oscars 10 years ago and it’s still one of your favourite films, then this is definitely the place to be this weekend. You can hear the soundtrack live as the award-winning film is screened. Don’t miss this unmissable experience!

Whiplash, the three Oscar-winning 2014 film, is one of the most memorable music-themed films of the last ten years. Telling the story of a promising, ambitious drummer and his ruthless music teacher, the film is set in a music school setting, and largely through the sweaty rehearsals, rehearsals and performances that culminate in the sweat, blood, sweat and tears that go into creating the perfect production. In this two-part live production with a film screening, we get to experience this first-hand, as drummer André Charlier tracks all the drum beats in the film with absolute precision. The music is performed live and in perfect sync with the film by the brilliant Multiquarium Big Band.

Whiplash, a divisive film about the often ruthless world of New York’s jazz school, premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it won several awards – and was recently voted the best film in Sundance history. Director Damien Chazelle’s (see also California Dream) film has been nominated for five Oscars and its score has also been nominated for a Grammy Award. In addition to great acting by Miles Teller as the determined student and J.K. Simmons as the ruthless music teacher, the film also boasts a major role for composer Justin Hurwitz. And now we can experience the music live as we watch the film on screen behind the orchestra. The Multiquarium Big Band, with pianist Benoït Sourisse and drummer André Charlier, will perform the entire soundtrack with jazz accompaniment, in a way that is as accurate as anything you’ve seen on screen. A breathtaking artistic feat!

The film will be screened in English with Hungarian subtitles.
