The Cry of Jazz

May 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Screening of Ed Bland’s The Cry of Jazz in Celebration of its 50th Anniversary
A very special screening on Thursday, May 9, 4 pm: The Cry of Jazz is the only film composer and musician Ed Bland ever helmed. It fused street grit and ivory tower intellect into a thirty-four minute celluloid whirlwind unlike anything before or since, all the while scored by a then unknown Le Sun Ra & his Arkestra. Deemed radical, alarmist, and amateurish by many upon its initial release, this black and white gem was eventually considered worthy by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 2010.
