Ars Nova Workshop presents the New Paths Festival: On Film
dir. Daniel Kraus, 2004, DVD, English, color, 76 min.
In preparation for the New Paths Festival, Ars Nova Workshop is proud to present a day of documentary films at International House. These three films turn the lens on musicians, but keep the camera rolling after the performance ends. The result is three visually arresting views into the creation process of jazz and improvised music, exposing both the quotidian struggles of life as a working musician and the rich anecdotal histories of these musicians. These films are artistic endeavors in themselves, but also exist as historical documents of the development of the avant-garde over the last forty years.
New Paths Festival has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
