Whisky Time: Charlemagne Palestine


Every day, at precisely 5:30 pm, no matter where he is in the world and what he’s doing, Charlemagne Palestine pours himself a glass of whisky. For this special Face the Strange program, the MCA presents the US premiere of Whisky Time: A Portrait of Charlemagne Palestine. Directed by Guy-Marc Hinant and Dominique Lohlé, the film presents a series of intimate conversations held at 5:30 pm between the legendary experimental composer and artist and the filmmakers.

This screening is presented in affiliation with CHARLECHICAGOMAGNE Week, a series of events that mark Charlemagne Palestine’s visit to Chicago on March 13–17. CHARLECHICAGOMAGNE Week is organized by the Frequency Series.

Whisky Time was produced in Belgium in 2013 by Sub Rosa OME, CPC, Stempel, with the support of Centre du Cinéma et de l’Audiovisuel de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles and VOO.

English and French, 57 minutes.
