Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2023: Screening “Bird – Clint Eastwood”
November 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm€10
Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2023: Screening “Bird – Clint Eastwood” is held on Friday 17 November 2023, at 8 pm, in Opéra de Monte-Carlo – Salle Garnier.
After the death of his young daughter, Charlie “Bird” Parker, a famous black jazz saxophonist, attempts suicide. His white wife, Chan, admits him to a psychiatric emergency ward, but refuses to have him committed: a creator is entitled to an “unusual” life. From this situation, various interwoven flashbacks evoke the life of Parker, who elevated the saxophone to its highest level of expression and influenced his entire generation, but whose private life was a daily hell.
