Boing at the Guelph Film Festival
November 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$20
The IICSI is sponsoring the concert by “Boing,” featuring Ben Grossman and Friends on the mouth harp, as part of the Guelph Film Festival’s screening “The Strange Sound of Happiness.”
In the strange and beautiful film, The Strange Sound of Happiness, Diego returns to Sicily, his home, after years of drifting. His dream of becoming a musician has not worked out. He has no job and no plans for the future but the sound of an ancient musical instrument, the mouth harp, points the way. From the torrid coasts of Sicily, Diego journeys to the frozen flatlands of Yakutia in Siberia where he becomes part of a prophecy from a century ago. The “sound of happiness” is at last there.
Venue: The Church of the Apostles, (St James and St Matthias), 86 Glasgow Street North, Guelph, ON
