Music films: Broadway at the Paramount partner program at the LANGSTON HUGHES AFRICAN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL
7:00 p.m.    Broadway at the Paramount Celebration of FELA!, coming to STG's Paramount Theatre in May 2013

Join us for short films about music, dance, and creativity.

NOSTALGIA (USA, 15 MIN.) Directed by Johnnie Hobbs, who will be present for the screening. Seattle premiere.
Mr. Gabe Robinson is a living legend who struggles to hold onto his music and his muse, despite the fervent opposition and resentment of his loving son, Gabe, Jr. Punctuated by vivid musical memories, the aging tap dancer recalls the glorious and regretful life he once lived both onstage and off, with a message not about dreams deferred, but dreams derailed. The film stars DulĂ© Hill (The West Wing, Psych),  Johnnie Hobbs Jr., Chloe Arnold and Jason Samuels Smith.

WE ARE FAMILY (United Kingdom, 2012; 7 min., 40 sec.) Directed by Astrid Edwards. Seattle premiere.
In 2012, legendary Chic guitarist and Music Producer Nile Rodgers threw a free pre-concert party for his fans in New York. This is a film about Nile Rodgers and his fans - some of whom he hadn't seen for 40 years and some who he was meeting for the first time.

LIVING JAZZ WITH BILL SAXTON (USA, 12 min.) Directed by Indrani Kopal. Seattle premiere.
A short documentary about Bill Saxton, a veteran saxophonist and his intimate Jazz Club in Harlem called Bill's Place.

FELA KUTI: TEACHER DON'T TEACH ME NONSENSE  (1984)
