Jazz Film at Cinemateket

01. August 2016

In association with Oslo Jazz Festival’s 30-year anniversary we have partnered with Cinemateket, where there will be screenings of a jazzy theme program from the 2nd to the 20th of August.

Included in the program is the brand new Miles Ahead, and older classics in which Line, The Fabulous Baker Boys and Bird are among them.

This year Oslo Jazzfestival marks the 50-year anniversary of the concert with Charles Lloyd Quartet in Universitetets Aula October 1966. Charles Lloyd returns to Universitetets Aula on Wednesday August 17th, and the day before The Charles Lloyd documentary Arrows to Infinity will be shown at Cinemateket. Prior to the screening, DN- and Jazznytt- journalist Audun Vinger will conduct an interview with Charles Lloyd himself and director Dorothy Darr. In the film we hear from Lloyd himself and those who have worked with him about the mistakes that have been made, his withdrawal and his spiritual and musical awakening.
