Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira // London Film Screening // 18th July – SOLD OUT

July 14, 2014

We are excited to announce the cinematic premiere of Gilles Peterson’s documentary “Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira” at the Hackney Picturehouse, London. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Gilles hosted by Caspar Llewellyn-Smith from The Guardian.

In keeping with the spirit of this unique and daring album , BOSH – the award-winning in-house production arm of ad agency, Mother London – captured Gilles’ trip on film.
Their resident director and Brazilophile Charlie Inman, teamed up with resident Rio De Janiero film director Ben Holman, of Beija films, to co-direct and cover every element of Gilles’ trip. It was a wild journey deep into the favelas, through the world of Samba, and even introducing Gilles to some of the new emerging talent in Brazilian music.
Creating a colourful itinerary of people, places and events that passionately represents the real side of Brazilian culture and music: beyond the typical Football and Copacabana clichés. The result, “Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira”, a film that shows both the music and the cultural journey that Gilles took during his time in Rio de Janeiro.

Tickets are no longer available, but keep your eyes peeled for future screenings across London and the UK. Make sure to sign up to our mailing list for updates.
