WORLD PREMIERE OF THE BIG BEAT SOUNDTRACK LIVE WITH A LARGE-
As every year, the International Festival of Film Music and Multimedia
SOUNDTRACK Poděbrady again kicks off with a Czech film legend. This year, the
opening concert will be taken over by Czech musical film Big Beat.
The popular film by Jan Hřebejk with a star cast (Martin Dejdar, Jakub Špalek,
Josef Abrhám, Sylva Tománková, Saša Rašilov and others) will come to life at the
main stage – in an original design, combining the film with live music and other
scenic elements. Do not miss the premiere of this uniquely designed musical film
led by the author of the music himself, Ivan Hlas.
The well-established realization team behind the successful concert of
Čechomor´s film The Year of the Devil suggests it would be an unusual
experience you cannot miss. The stage will host both lead actors and their
singers. Do you know who actually sang all Bejby, Eda and Milada´s songs?
The 1993 film won four Czech Film Critics´ Awards – Best Film, Direction, Best
Actor in a Leading Role (Josef Abrhám) and, above all, Best Music. The festival
will start with a film soundtrack completed much before it was clear whether the
film would be shot at all.
