Q&A with director and Jon Sa Trinxa plus DJ set at SUPERMAX

Dir. Lily Rinae, Japan, 2019, 70min

Doc'n Roll Films in collaboration with Spiritland is delighted to present the UK Premiere of Born Balearic: Jon Sa Trinxa and The Spirit of Ibiza.

Adjacent to Ibiza's Party Capital Resident DJ Jon Sa Trinxa has spent a quarter of a century on the beach spinning an eclectic mix of musical styles that stir the hearts of the Balearic artist community. Jon’s music is Balearic: an undefinable, fluid, kaleidoscopic blend that defies genres, but more importantly reflects the values of the island’s permanent residents.

Born Balearic is an abstract audiovisual exploration of the community that has heard its own voice in his music: an international collection of creatives and craftspeople and thinkers that includes a leather artisan from Paris, a Kurdish new-age musician from Iran, a former New Yorker who publishes a newspaper that reports only optimistic news, and various other members of Ibiza’s cultural scene. All of these people have made their lives on this island, and they all share an ecosystem with Jon, representing Balearic culture; and Jon’s transcendent music is this culture’s soundtrack.
