I Called Him Morgan (2016) | Written & Directed by Kasper Collin | 1h 32min
On a snowy night in February 1972, celebrated jazz musician Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife Helen during a gig at a club in New York City. The murder sent shockwaves through the jazz community, and the doubles as a seductive tribute to its subject's jazz passion as well as an absorbing look at a fatally doomed relationship. Called "one of the best films of the year" by the Los Angeles Times, it is a film about love, jazz and America.
Check the schedule below: there are two chances to see each film!
Now in its third year, BRIC JazzFest includes film, dance, panel discussions, student workshops, and a three-stage, three-night live music marathon that celebrates some of the most exciting global legends in jazz, and groundbreaking new jazz artists from Brooklyn and beyond.
