A wonderful portrait of the late Juul Anthonissen (deceased in 2008) and his unequalled Hnita Jazz Club, which hosted so many of the absolute jazz greats. Stuffed with archive materials, old recordings and exclusive interviews this documentary is a tribute to the unrestrained musical passion of the man who single-handedly placed his hometown Heist-op-den-Berg on the word jazz stage.
The screening is is concluded with a live gig by Belgian musician and multi-instrumentalist DAAN.
