Ornette: Made in America
+ intro by broadcaster and writer Kevin Le Gendre
Get closer to musician and composer Ornette Coleman in Shirley Clarke’s innovative documentary.
Dir Shirley Clarke
In her last feature, Clarke experimented with the documentary form to reflect the radical work of legendary African-American jazz musician and composer, Ornette Coleman. She not only captured Coleman’s extraordinary career in an innovative way, but also the American jazz scene of the 1960s and 70s. Alongside this we also screen Clarke’s short films Dance in the Sun (1953) and 24 Frames Per Second (1977).
