Jim Jarmusch making several appearances this weekend

  • Print

We already know Jim Jarmusch will be in Winnipeg for the WSO’s New Music Festival this weekend to perform Tesla in New York, an opera he composed with Phil Kline, at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26 at the Centennial Concert Hall.

But just as Jarmusch tends to cross esthetic borders as a filmmaker, writer, producer and musician, he will be crossing the boundaries of that gig. He will appear at Cinematheque on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. to introduce When Pigs Fly, a 1993 film directed by his partner, Sara Driver. Jarmusch was the executive producer.

As it happens, Jarmusch actually appears in the 9 p.m. film in Cinematheque’s Saturday night double bill, Blank City, a documentary examining the creatively fertile New York underground film scene in the ’70s and ’80s, including Jarmusch’s own early works Permanent Vacation and Stranger Than Paradise.

In addition, Jarmusch will stay in Winnipeg through Monday to guest with Phil Kline at the Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) solo show at Union Sound Hall on Monday Jan. 27. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for that show and will be available at Music Trader and The Urban Bakery as of Tuesday, Jan. 21. or online at www.ticketworkshop.com.
