Jazz guitarist-composer Django Reinhardt was one of the most brilliant pioneers of European jazz and the father of gypsy swing. ‘Django’ grippingly portrays one chapter in the musician’s eventful life: his flight form occupied Paris in 1943. It is a poignant tale of survival: constant danger, flight and the atrocities committed against his family could not make him stop playing.
“Django” was the opening film of the 67th Berlinale Film Festival and will get his Belgian premiere at 'Leuven Jazz'!
