In addition, Gary Pearson will also screen Berlin Jazz Story, a video narrative.

The journalistic overtones of Berlin Jazz Story establish the narrative flow of this entertaining and thought provoking production. Incorporating references to such diverse sources as music video, Film Noir, documentary genres, and Brechtian theatre, this ‘jazz story’ creates a complex and stylistically textured portrayal of the human drama and urban nightlife.
