Jazz band shows its ‘Swing’

Pic's teenage musicians perform at AFM bash

Shutters on the Beach was in full swing on Thursday night during a live performance from the cast of the Japanese pic “Swing Girls,” which is being screened at AFM.

The pic’s jazz band composed of teenage girls from Japan performed songs such as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” while partygoers attempted to dance around photographers snapping shots of the cast.

Afterward the girls, who do not speak fluent English, encouraged the crowd, full of buyers, to go see the film as best they could.

Although no deals have been made thus far, pic’s helmer Shinobu Yaguchi felt confidant that the film will be sold before the market closes on Nov. 10.
