Bolden (2019), R, 108 minutes

June 8, 3:00pm

Thalian Hall’s Stein Theatre

Bolden, a drama directed by Dan Pritzker, imagines the compelling, powerful and tragic journey of Buddy Bolden, the unsung American hero who invented Jazz. With little biographical information known and no found recordings of his music, the film's narrative composes fragmented memories of his past, against the political and social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived. Score by Wynton Marsalis.

Louis (2010),  (2010), R, 70 minutes

June 8, 5:00pm

Thalian Hall’s Stein Theatre

Shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond as a modern re-imagining of early silent film, Louis is an homage to Louis Armstrong, Charlie Chaplin, beautiful women and the birth of American music. The grand Storyville bordellos, alleys and cemeteries of 1907 New Orleans provide a backdrop of lust, blood and magic for 6 year old Louis (Anthony Coleman) as he navigates the colorful intricacies of life in the city. Young Louis's dreams of playing the trumpet are interrupted by a chance meeting with a beautiful and vulnerable girl named Grace (Lowry) and her baby, Jasmine. Haley, in a performance reminiscent of the great comic stars of the silent screen, plays the evil Judge Perry who is determined not to let Jasmine's true heritage derail his candidacy for governor. Music performed by Wynton Marsalis, Cecile Licad and the 10-piece All Stars class Ensemble.
