The Whole World Sings: International Musicals September 15-21 at the Quad

The Quad surveys (subtitled) singing and dancing with a selection of musicals from across the globe

Program highlights include new restorations of Guru Dutt's Pyaasa (North American premiere), Euzhan Palcy's rarely screened Siméon (New York premiere), and Chantal Akerman's Golden Eighties (North American premiere)

While many beloved movie musicals have come from the U.S., some of the genre’s most delirious highlights have been produced far beyond the confines of Hollywood. For one week, it’s all (subtitled) singing, all dancing at the Quad, as we span continents and film history to explore how multiple national cinemas—from Europe to Asia to Latin America and beyond—have made the musical their own. Organized in collaboration with Village Voice film critic Bilge Ebiri.
