Synopsis and Trailer:

Thursday, August 1, 6 - 8:30pm
"Accordion Kings " Colombia, 80 min.
TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLbkhVLwoJE
This documentary film captures the energy of a six-day festival of
Colombian music that takes place every year in a lush valley near
Colombia's Caribbean coast. The fast, upbeat melodies of vallenato, have  universal appeal, says the documentary's producer, Alan Tomlinson. Vallenato can 'reach out across distances; perhaps create a new understanding of Colombia'. The rythm, first documented in the late 1800s, has come to define coastal Colombia almost as much as the works of author Gabriel García Márquez. In fact, the Nobel Prize winner is said to have described his epic novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude, as a 400-page vallenato. “Vallenato”, has been popularized by singers like Carlos Vives, also featured in the film.

"El Rey" US-Mexico-Guatemanla, 55 min.
TRAILER: http://vimeo.com/38241497
Stefan and Adi have been friends and band mates for years. Sick of the boring repetition of life in Austria, they embark on a musical adventure through Latin America, to experience the local culture and people through music. On an old school bus transformed into their home on wheels, we ride along with them as they meet locals, exchange songs and entertain with their colorful Latin adaptations.

Through the eyes of our maverick musicians, we are exposed to some of the hardship and injustice the people face each and every day. Inspiringly, they live their lives with such humor, beauty and joy despite it all. The Austrians’ understanding of music is challenged during the road trip. It is more than just a frivolous diversion or means of seduction. They experience how music transcends and uplifts; it is a voice, a witness, a weapon or a friend.
