A WAR ON SCREEN production

Set in Montmartre, Paris, a sewer worker named Chico envies the life of street cleaners working above ground. In a squalid boudoir nearby, a young girl named Diane is being beaten up by her elder sister, driven to distraction by poverty and an addiction to absinthe. Diane meets Chico, who comes to her assistance but is ready to abandon her to her tumultuous lifestyle. However, when the police get involved, Chico makes out that Diane is his wife in order to spare her from going to prison, and takes her back with him to his seventh floor garret beneath a starlit sky…

VINCENT PEIRANI

Embracing all genres of music, Vincent Peirani continually strives to take his accordion to ever more exciting places, in an explosive mixture of sound and rhythm. In 2015, he swept the board both in France (Artist of the Year at the Victoires du Jazz ceremony) and abroad (Instrumentalist of the Year at ECHO Jazz, its German equivalent), in both solo, duet and group performances.
As an associate of La Comète – scène nationale, where he has exhibited his amazing talent with all its multi-faceted vigour, Vincent Peirani has taken up the challenge to devise and perform the music for the opening film to the 4th War On Screen Festival.
