Sound Unseen is proud to present the return of Sound Unseen 19 favorite, “Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes,” co-presented by Jazz88 Radio. This sensational documentary goes deep into the history of one of the most important record labels and how it influenced many of jazz musicians and historians.
“Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury” follows the path of Luxury, a band from small-town Georgia, who, on the cusp of success, suffer a devastating touring wreck with long-term consequences. In the intervening years, they continue to make records and three members of the band become Eastern Orthodox priests. Through interviews and archival footage, 'Parallel Love' tells the gripping and poignant story of Luxury and documents the making of a new record, now as priests.
Sound Unseen is proud to present the MN premiere of the Cannes, Fantastic Fest and IFFR selection, “Knife + Heart” by writer/director Yann Gonzalez (“You and the Night” and former member of French electronic band, M83). In Yann Gonzalez’s second feature, a masked serial killer stalks a producer and her film company in this love letter to European giallo, American grindhouse cinema, and ‘70s gay porn.
