I Fagiolini publicly releases award-winning film, 'The Stag Hunt', on 3 June in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II
3 June at 6pm BST
Ever irreverent solo-voice ensemble I Fagiolini celebrates the Platinum Jubilee with the free release of its film "The Stag Hunt", a modern satire about a royal family killing for sport. This acclaimed short film by John La Bouchardière, which has been widely praised for its invention and humour, is based on Janequin’s madcap polyphonic pile-up La Chasse (1537), with its virtuoso soundscape of hunting horns and galloping horses. After raising funds for wildlife charity Born Free and a successful run of international film festivals, including awards from as far and wide as Clermont Ferrand and LA, this stunningly sung, quirky and hugely entertaining nine-minute film will be available free of charge. “This is GENIUS!” (Suzi Digby OBE). Join I Fagiolini for the public unveiling of the film at the watch party on Facebook on Friday 3 June at 18:00 BST, or at the film’s website: www.ifagiolini.com/thestaghuntfilm. Produced by Polyphonic Films.
