Studio 29 presents: 'My Blueberry Nights' by Wong Kar Wai+ ‘Cardiotest’ by Carlo Fatigoni- Sunday 1 November 2009 at 7.15pm
The project Cardiotest is born in 2006 from the meeting of Carlo Fatigoni and Dionisio Capuano. More than a group it is a laboratory. The meeting with the saxophonist and composer bostoniano Neil Leonard brings to the recording of some sessions of jazz improvisation and urban vintage post-glitch. Together with Leonard they have exhibited to Ascoli Piceno in homage to Arthur Rimbaud. The emotional range finds an extension multiethnic in "Sea-Sons", performance shown up in Venice in 2007 within the review 'Sguardi sonori.' The action stirs among material original audios, 'found sounds', Egyptian popular songs, projections video, condensing himself/herself/itself in the paradoxical fisicità of the dance, with Pintus dressed of tulle.

2. MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS
With his first English-language film, Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai's touch loses none of the seductive luster and magic that made his Chinese films so popular. MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS follows the fortunes of Elizabeth, who after having been left by her boyfriend, sets out across America to find herself and recover. She makes a stop in Memphis, where she pulls double-duty at a diner by day and a bar at night, and watches the disintegration of another pair of troubled lovers. She moves on to Nevada where she befriends a vivacious card player and smalltime hustler who challenges her notions of contentment. While MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS isn't Wong's best film-The film is undeniably beautiful, and features the director's trademark visual sense: shimmering neons, lush chiaroscuro, and swirling slow-motion images. The sadness and tears that emerge from America's taverns in the wee hours are as breathtakingly alluring as its natural landscapes. In Wong's hands, everything is cast in the light of joy-life and death, suffering and happiness-and the same goes for his understanding of America. Whether this America ever existed is wholly irrelevant; for when you watch a Wong movie, you happily enter his country, wherever that may be.
