DIFF 365@VOX powered by du will exclusively screen Django for UAE audiences from 1- 14 June at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates.
Django which opened the 67th Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, unfolds the poignant account of famed French jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt.
In 1943, France is a mired under German occupation yet every night the city comes alive with guitarist and composer Django Reinhardt’s witty, life-affirming ‘gypsy swing’ music. Despite the ongoing persecution of countless Romany people, Django, played by actor Reda Kateb, remains untouched due to his popularity and sway of the Parisian elite, until one day. Torn between his passion for his art and protection of his family, the unconventional musician must decide what it means to survive.
A recipient of international critical acclaim, Django was selected to open the 2017 Berlin Film Festival due to the film’s ability to move all audiences with its universal tale of identity set at the crux of Reinhardt’s passions and roots.
Django will screen at cinema 9, VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates. Tickets are available online at the VOX website uae.voxcinemas.com and at the box office at VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates.
