The story of Jazz Dance is a complex one, it goes to the very heart of humanity. Jazz in movement and music can be beautiful, puzzling, avant garde, authentic, and theatrical. It is forever evolving. Occupying a contested artscape, Jazz Dance, with its historic and artistic roots in enslaved peoples, is also a metaphor for struggle, resistance and acceptance.
Uprooted, free of any artificial narrative, is a cinematic exploration of this art form, paying homage to its lineage, celebrating its many re-interpretations, and through a fast- moving kaleidoscope of movement and music, will inspire the dancer of tomorrow to keep this art form alive. Set against observational and experiential expressions from a diverse cast of experts, practitioners, and living legends, award-winning director Khadifa Wong takes us on an unforgettable exploration of American history with people who believe the art of Jazz Dance matters as much as life itself. This exclusive screening is available only on PSF@Home.
