Playing in-cinema and online (as of Sep 30)

Revel in the astonishing sounds (and sights) of that combustible and wildly diverse moment in music known as free jazz. Created in response to the turbulence of the late 50s and early 60s, free jazz abandoned the strict rhythms of its commercial-sounding predecessor for more emotion, fire and fury. Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Sun Ra & His Arkestra, Cecil Taylor— the musicians behind this new movement were largely ignored by the mainstream, and as a result ignited their own subculture. Today, as the genre reaches the height of its popularity, director Tom Surgal traces its origins, history and influence in an explosive tribute to one of the most innovative moments in music history.
