Ornette: Made in America

New 35mm restoration

Gorgeously restored, seminal independent filmmaker Shirley Clarke’s (The Connection) ORNETTE captures legendary performances by jazz iconoclast Coleman, filmed everywhere from Fort Worth to Morocco. Enriched by interviews with family, friends and fans (including William Burroughs and Buckminster Fuller) and a vivid recreation of his childhood, this is a kaleidoscopic portrait of a truly singular artist.
