Music can change the lives of those who listen to it. This was the case for author Noël Balen, who was inspired to write a collection of poems, accompanied by a record, as a tribute to legendary double bassist Charles Mingus. A genuine work of art, this documentary filmed in black and white hooks us into the bewitching world of jazz. Artists and singers give voice to Balen’s poems, accompanied by the immortal music of Mingus. A dazzling musical journey, both daring and inventive.

Passionate about photography since he was young, Amaury Voslion directed his first short film L’espace d’un instant in 1995. He then directed four other shorts, Troisième oeil, Trouble, N.Y, Jules & Romy. In 2005, Magnificat Films and TPS entrusted him with the direction of his first television film Lumière, with Philippe Nahon, Manuel Blanc, Anne Roussel et Florence Loiret Caille. His great mastery of the image and his strong sense of aesthetics led him to produce clips, corporate films and commercials internationally and especially in China, for clients such as WWF, McDonalds and Air France. He is currently developing his first fiction feature film.
