This second improvisational jazz battle sees the Birdman of Alkijazz (musician Tony Orrell) take on Perrier Award winning pianist Matthew Bourne in an accompaniment to Japanese silent masterpiece A Page of Madness (15). In this avant-garde classic, director Kinugasa uses an incredible battery of visual distortions and stylistic quirks to present the world of a mental asylum from the perspective of those on the inside, telling a strong and poignant human story that still retains its power today. At the end of the match there will be an informal jamming session.

Dir: Teinosuke Kinugasa Japan 1926 58 mins
