West Side Story, Robert Wise, USA, 1961
Original English version with Spanish subtitles
New York’s Upper West Side neighbourhood is home to two teen street gangs: the Sharks and the Jets. Tensions grow when, at a dance, Maria and Tony, who should be enemies as members of rival gangs, fall in love at first sight.
West Side Story reworks the story of Romeo and Juliet, set now in New York in the 50s. A classic musical and one of the all-out greatest films in movie history.

Big Pocket Orchestra (soundtracks revisited)
The Big Pocket Orchestra (BPO) is an instrumental band formed in Barcelona in late-2015. The idea is to pay tribute to music from the audiovisual world, mainly film, TV series and cartoons. The BPO rework compositions by the likes of Nino Rota, Henry Mancini, Lalo Schifrin and John Williams, using samplers and excerpts from film audio and fusing them with new rhythms and musical ideas. The result is a tribute band that serves up a powerful cocktail of swing, big band, rock, pop, Latin, folk and orchestral music.
