December 1969, Thelonious Monk arrives in Paris. Before his evening concert, he records a program for French television. The rushes that have been preserved show us a Thelonious Monk who is rare, close, and in the grip of the violent factory of stereotypes from which he tries to escape. The film becomes the crossing of this great artist, who would like to exist only for his music. And the portrait of a hollow media machine as ridiculous as it is revolting. Comprised of footage culled from a two and a half hour unaired interview, REWIND & PLAY is an atypical document of the musician’s brilliance as he faces off against the era’s media machine. 65 minutes / 2022 / France, Germany All ages
