MODS is a collective of Portuguese musicians who create music based on improvisation, which also takes the form of video, film, or any other kind of other visual aesthetic. The name MODS is a form of wordplay that stands for “Music on D Spot”. This project investigates the work of Malta’s cinema pioneer Cecil Satariano, a multi award-winning author of great artistic value, but whose work is mostly unreleased and very little-known in Malta and Europe. The intention is to explore Satariano’s oeuvre through a selection of short movies from his collection. Two short films directed by Satariano, “I’m Furious – Red” (1970) and “Giuseppe” (1972) shall be screened, together with a live soundtrack. This event will also feature a selection of Maltese musicians.
This project is also part of the Spazju Kreattiv programme and supported by Valletta 2018 and Guimarães Municipality.
