About the event: Since their early beginnings in the late 19th Century and their rise to mainstream popularity in the 1920’s, film and the African American music known as jazz have shared parallel and often intersecting histories. Jazz on Film explores the symbiotic relationship between these two great art forms through short films that feature jazz as performance, as soundtrack, as theme and inspiration for innovative film stories and forms. From the early years of sound-on-film through contemporary storytelling, we invite viewers to experience jazz across a broad range of film genres and forms.
