Enzian Presents a “MEET THE FILMMAKER” Event Featuring “MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE”
Celebrate an Evening of Cinema and Blues with Musician Rita Chiarelli
Orlando, FL (June 20, 2012) – Enzian presents a special, one-time engagement of “Music From the Big House” featuring a live Q&A and concert from musician Rita Chiarelli, widely known as Canada’s “Queen of the Blues.” In the film, Chiarelli takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues, Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary a.k.a. Angola Prison – what used to be the bloodiest prison in America. Her trip turns into a historic jailhouse performance – playing with inmates serving life sentences for murder, rape, and armed robbery. Their shared bond of music and Chiarelli’s ebullient personality draw striking revelations from the inmates. Through voices of hope and love of music, the convicts radiate humanity and redemption on their quest for forgiveness.

Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Enzian, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland
