25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
synopsisFollowing an introductory trumpet solo and audience applause, we enter into the large home and thoughts of the now-deceased jazz legend Ted Curson, a brilliant trumpeter and composer. This cinematic portrait, infused with an unobtrusive and tangible sense of intimacy, uses imaginative static shots to frame the contemplations of a burly man who is short on time.
Through a crack in the door, the camera films a wide range of emotions that are reflected in the old man‘s face as he plays with closed eyes. His hair is gray and his body bent, but just like his home, he too possesses many rooms filled with light.
