Get The Blessing is rightly famous for its hard-hitting and irreverent take on British jazz but this event brings their music’s cinematic qualities to the fore.
For this special event they team up with award-winning, long-time GTB and Portishead collaborator John Minton to produce a film which examines and celebrates over a century of Bristol, captured on film by local people.
If last year’s Metropolis was an epic expressionist vision of dystopia, Bristopolis offers an intimate contemporary parallel: a poetic visual essay and an abstract urban history, using archive footage filtered through John Minton’s creative vision, and organically wedded to one of Bristol’s most famous jazz exports – the inventive, uncategorisable Get The Blessing.
