Big Bill Blues (1957) [Short]

Belgium (MIFF 1961 , Programme 24)
Director: Jean Delire

Belgium Television was persuaded to co-operate in making this film at the time when the famous blues singer, Big Bill Bronzy, was in Brussels for a concert. It is set in an actual existentialist-type jail cellar, and consists simply of Bronzy singing against this background. The photographic treatment is imaginative.
