Sounds of the Sahel Live-Score: "Bloodsport"


Location: Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center (View on map )

When world-renowned Malian musicians Ahmed Ag Kaedy, Dramane Toure, and Belco Guindo (together performing as Amical Blues) live scored Carl Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc (1929) last year, they were asked: What film do you want to score next? The answer was immediate: Bloodsport.

Sounds of the Sahel will accompany Frank Dux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) as he stakes his claim and fights to survive in a full-contact martial arts contest while being pursued by military police (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker). Matte! 

This is a free but ticketed event. Tickets will only be available for pick-up one hour prior to the performance. Click here for more information and to reserve tickets.

Co-presented by the College of Arts and Letters, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Keough School of Global Affairs, and the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts.
