12 Years a Slave
The Audiovisual Institute of Monaco presents a screening of the 2014 American film 12 Years a Slave about Solomon Northup, a young black man from New York state who is kidnapped and sold as a slave. Faced with the cruelty of a cotton plantation owner, Solomon fights to stay alive and keep his dignity. The star-studded drama directed by Steve McQueen features Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Benedinct Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt and Lupita Nyong’o.
The film will be screened in its original version of English with French subtitles. The screening will begin at 20:00 on Tuesday, March 22 at the Théâtre des Variétés.
Reported – Thursday Live Sessions – YAROL POUPAUD
Yarol Poupaud is a multifaceted artist with a 30-year career in the rock scene (from the band FFF to Johnny Hallyday, as his last music director and onstage guitarist), who has released his first solo album: Yarol. His goal is to integrate, in his own style, all his favourite influences: soul, R&B, electro, rap, and African music. For his first project, he tackles singing, writing, and composing songs in French and English, playing with styles to achieve but one goal: excitement. And this excitement is never expressed more than when onstage. If you’re seeing Yarol, be prepared to sweat and wring your shirt out!
