About
Ornette: Made in America captures Ornette Colemans evolution over three decades. Returning home to Fort Worth, Texas in 1983 as a famed performer and composer, documentary footage, dramatic scenes, and some of the first music video-style segments ever made, chronicle his boyhood in segregated Texas and his subsequent emergence as an American cultural pioneer and world-class icon. Among those who contribute to the film: William Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Buckminster Fuller, Don Cherry, Yoko Ono, Charlie Haden, Robert Palmer, Jayne Cortez and John Rockwell.

Ornette: Made in America is essential for anyone hoping to understand the history of jazz and the fertile creative exchange that highlighted the 60s and 70s in America. It is a portrayal of the inner life of an artist-innovator.

The innovative techniques that director Shirley Clarke and producer Kathelin Hoffman employed in this film run parallel with the music of the man who is its subject. Clarke defied traditional documentary formats to reveal Colemans extraordinary vision through her equally extraordinary filmmaking artistry.

Critically acclaimed when it released in 1985, the film is even more significant today, as Colemans influence has increased, while Clarke and Hoffmans interpretation of his life and times remain as fresh and exciting as ever.

The film focuses on the struggles and triumphs of Colemans life as well as on the inspired intelligence that spawned his creativity and ensured his success. Clarkes footage includes Coleman in conversation with family and friends; excerpts of interviews, riffs and travels, along with footage of his performancesin his hometown of Fort Worth, TX, in New York, in Morocco and beyondadding up to the most comprehensive single record of his career available.

Ornette: Made in America explores the rhythms, images and myths of America as seen through the eyes of an artists ever-expanding imagination and experience.

(Shirley Clarke, US, 1985, 77 min, in English)

Accessibility

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Vivian Hua at vivian@nwfilmforum.org
