Synopsis

Enzo Avitabile, renowned Neapolitan saxophonist and singer/songwriter, is here filmed by director Jonathan Demme, a long time admirer of Avitabile’s music. This work represents an incredible opportunity as one of the world's great directors tells us not just about the music of a singular artist in its fusion of Neapoliltan, world music (and especially Arab with performances by Naseer Shamma and Palestinian singer Amal Murkus) and jazz but also of a city, Naples, with all of its treasures and contradictions.
