Movie buffs get the chance to rev up to the beat of hit music of the 70s and 80s while enjoying three iconic films that have been digitally restored and are featured by the Quezon City International Film Festival (QCinema).
The “Digitally Remastered Series” saves a special section for restored iconic pictures, “All That Jazz”, “Footloose” and “Saturday Night Fever.”
QCinema showcases the section from October 21 to 30, 2018, at Gateway Mall (Cineplex 10); Robinsons Galleria (Robinsons Movieworld); SM City North Edsa; SM Megamall; SM Manila; SM Mall of Asia; and Ayala Malls Cinema in Trinoma and U.P. Town Center.
“All That Jazz” is a 1979 American film directed by Bob Fosse and written by Robert Alan Aurthur. The story is a semi-autobiographical novel based on aspects of the life of Fosse as a dancer, choreographer, and director.
Fosse was nominated for his film at the Cannes Film Festival in 1980 and won the Palm d’Or award, widely considered as the highest award in the film industry. It was selected to be preserved at the National Film Registry in the United States in 2001.
The classic “Footloose,” directed by Herbert Ross, follows the story of Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon), an upbeat teen who moves to a small town where dancing and rock music have been banned
In “Saturday Night Fever,” director John Badham takes dancing to a whole level featuring disco songs by the Bee Gees. The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack is regarded as one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time.
It features the story of Tony Manero (John Travolta), a working-class young man who spends his weekends drinking and dancing all night at the local Brooklyn club.
John Travolta got the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Musical or Comedy and the Academy Award for Best Actor.
