This UK premiere will be introduced by director Sercan Sezgin
Nublu is an impressionistic documentary about an underground jazz club of the same name in the lower east side encompassing the music traditions of NYC. Nublu is a place where artists with diverging musical styles experiment and develop their own sounds, carrying the tradition of the older NYC nightspots including Slugs, Five Spot and the Loft Jazz scene. Nublu features big chunks of musical performances from Nublu Orchestra, Henry Threadgill’s Ensemble, Sun Ra Arkestra, Brazilian Girls, Jojo Mayer’s Nerve and more, while visiting the history of earlier jazz clubs in the East Village.
Nublu, dir. Sercan Sezgin, USA 2017, 73 min
