About Northwest Film Forum and Earshot Jazz Film Festival:
Northwest Film Forum and the Earshot Jazz Festival team up to present this annual ﬁlm program celebrating the history, sounds and spirit of jazz, and its intersections with cinema.
This year’s festival features a new 35mm print of Shirley Clarke’s The Connection, stunningly restored by UCLA. Banned by censors and panned by critics (“sordid and disagreeable,” sniffed the Times) on its release, Clarke’s provocative ﬁlm features brilliant Beat dialogue and a propulsive jazz score as it focuses on a group of heroin addicts waiting for their dealer.
Also in the program are In Good Time, featuring jazz legend Marian McPartland (musician, composer, and host of a hit National Public Radio show); Deconstructing Dad featuring the proliﬁc Raymond Scott, a central ﬁgure in 20th century music; and the Chuck D-narrated FunkJazz Kafé: Diary of A Decade, which traces the history of a multi-faceted arts and music festival in Atlanta that became an incubation center for funk, jazz and soul music.
