Belgian Premiere 

Synopsis :

A pen scratches a notebook, rotary presses print a book, a double bass against the light. This is a film where words becomes music…  Intimate portrait of Charles Mingus, this is also a film on the process of creating music, where we simultaneously discover the work of an artist and how it was conceived. By following the narrators and the musicians recording the album in the studio, under the direction of Noël Balen and Etienne Gauthier, a strange magic is working. Is it the authenticity of the characters or the fact that music is photogenic ?
