Pieces by Frederic Chopin accompany, cradle and mark the tempo of these three stories, with music and dance playing a central role. THE MAGIC PIANO, a moving and esthetically stunning ode to travel, will crown Black Movie for Kids' autumn program and the film's puppets will be presented to audiences before each session. Screenings at the Grütli Cinemas will also benefit from two exceptional cine-concerts in which Parisian pianist and composer Jean-Baptiste Doucet offers his personal interpretations of the films' soundtracks.


Following the release of DERNIER TRAIN POUR BUSAN (LAST TRAIN FOR BUSAN) at the Cinerama Empire, we are happy to announce the first title in Black Movie's 2017 edition : SEOUL STATION. These two films, made by young Korean film director Sang-ho Yeon (creator of THE KING OF PIGS and THE FAKE), form an impressive diptych that uses the image of the zombie to evoke South Korea's socio-political context. While DERNIER TRAIN POUR BUSAN uses real-life shots, SEOUL STATION makes brilliant use of animation ; thanks to its novel approach, its caustic vision of Korean society and its brutality, it affirms the right to classification as a genre film great! Whatever you do, don't miss this film at Black Movie's 18th edition, from 20 to 29 January 2017.
