Why I’m Here / Pouquoi je suis ici, the documentary about our 2017 edition of Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie, directed by João França will screen at the Guelph Film Festival, in the Artistic Interventions Series!In this poetic exploration of sound, silence, movement, and place, director João França provides a glimpse into a magical world where musicians of diverse ages and abilities come together in an inclusive and supportive environment to explore the possibilities of improvisational collaborations (music, dance, and visual art). Following the experiences of the participants of the second annual Musical Improvisation at Land’s End / Coin-du-Banc en folie summer camp, which seeks to connect members of various communities with profound experiences of improvised music making, this short documentary interweaves the personal experiences of the camp participants with the breathtaking landscapes of Coin-du-Banc, Quebec and the surrounding areas. Why I’m Here / Pourquoi je suis ici offers an encounter between music, community, and place, painted in the delicate colours and textures of the Gaspé Peninsula.
