Performance by Antonio Sánchez

Fri, Mar 15, 2019 at 8pm

Experience the visually stunning 2015 Oscar winner for Best Picture by maverick director Alejandro Iñárritu accompanied live by renowned jazz drummer Antonio Sánchez, recreating his explosive, Grammy Award winning score that provides the heartbeat of the film. BiRDMAN: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a kinetic film experience that plays like a single, continuous sequence of events, with Sánchez’s drums supplying the energy and drive that underlines the emotional weight of the story and perfectly expresses the restless intensity of the characters. Antonio Sánchez is “one of the most accomplished and in-demand drummers in jazz.” (NPR)

Attendees can also enjoy a moderated pre-show discussion with Antonio Sánchez from 7-7:30pm on the process of composing for film and scoring BiRDMAN.
