Last year saw the loss of one of the founding fathers of free jazz, saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman. Next Tuesday and Wednesday, to honor the influential musician on the occasion of his birth, the Rosendale Theater will screen the 1985 film Ornette: Made in America.

Ornette: Made in America depicts a 1983 symphonic concert event in Coleman’s hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, and examines his evolution as an artist over three decades. It was directed by the avant-garde filmmaker Shirley Clarke, one of very few women in the cinema verité/direct cinema scene. Ted Folke, a filmmaker and producer who worked with Coleman, will introduce the program, and, according to the theater, “some surprise guests are expected in person or by Skype at the screenings.”

Watch this trailer:

Ornette: Made in America will be shown at the Rosendale Theater in Rosendale, New York, on March 8 and 9 at 7:15pm. Tickets are $7. For more information, call (845) 658-8989 or visit http://www.rosendaletheatre.org/.
