Details
 
This film is a landmark in gypsy jazz, offering portraits of artists perpetuating the venerable legacy of Django Reinhardt. It was praised by critics and public alike when it was released in French cinemas in October 2012. Director Bruno Le Jean spent eight years filming the guitarists Angelo Debarre, Moreno, Ninine Garcia and Tchavolo Schmitt. His film portrays everyday music handed down orally from one generation to the next - from the federating of gypsies, Romanies and Tziganes into one great family, to the permits and expulsion of Roms - and treats all those themes with humanity, poetry and realism. The ''Sons of the Wind'' in the film's title convey the rich treasures of this community. Their contribution to western culture, especially jazz, is immeasurable.
