Ornette - Made in America : 5th Annual Sembéne African Film & Arts Festival

Friday, November 15, 2013  
5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

This feature-length documentary is devoted to the life and art of famed jazz musician Ornette Coleman. Saxophonist, trumpeter, violist-you name the musical instrument, and supreme stylist Coleman will make magic with it. At the time this film was made, Coleman had not turned out an album in years, though he was still active on the concert circuit. Filmmaker Shirley Clarke focuses on Coleman's appearance with the symphony orchestra in his home town of Fort Worth, Texas.
Discussion Leader: K. Mensah Wali.
