Presented by Northwest Film Forum
Available to viewers in Washington state for 24 hours—watch at any time, Nov. 6, 7.00pm —Nov. 7 at 7.00pm PST.
Jazz dance’s history and artistic roots in the expression of enslaved peoples strengthen the art form, turning its practice into a metaphor for resistance and a struggle for acceptance. Directed by Khadifa Wong, and based on an original idea by Zack Nemorin, the films stars Debbie Allen, Joshua Bergasse, Jason Samuel Smith, Mandy Moore and others.
