Pupi Avati’s cinema is rooted in familiar places, 20th-century moods, genuine emotions, unspoken feelings, castrating shyness and surprising horrors. It balances the reassuring with the unexpected, always giving music an important role to play. Perhaps because jazz was the first muse of the Bolognese maestro, whose filmography includes titles such as Jazz Band, Dancing Paradise and Bix, testimony to a passion that led him to cross paths with the extraordinary talent of Lucio Dalla. But Avati’s career has also been marked by long-standing collaborations with musicians and composers such as Henghel Gualdi, Amedeo Tommasi and Riz Ortolani, other protagonists of crucial periods in Italian music.
