THE PEOPLE’S FILM CLUB PRESENTS: ‘WE OUT HERE + Q&A’
Director: Fabrice Bourgelle
Get down to the Institute of Light on Monday 26th March for an exclusive screening of We Out Here – half documentary, half music video – and 100% London jazz trip. As per, we’re making an evening of it: music & drinks to start, Qs & As to finish.
The film is director Fabrice Bourgelle’s visual accompaniment to the latest release from Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, which shares the same title. Both film and album aim to capture the here and now, as our city continues to bubble over with both jazz players and jazz appreciators – each side pushing the other further and higher.
But scenes don’t spring from nowhere. Many people have been nurturing the music and the musicians for a number of years. A substantial slice of the credit-pie must go to Tomorrow’s Warriors, who have been helping young musicians, with a focus on girls and those from the African diaspora, through their education and development since 1991. Many of the scene’s most recognisable faces are Tomorrow’s Warriors alumni – testament to the success of their endeavour and to the power of a well-funded, well-organised arts education.
The screening will be followed by a brief panel discussion featuring Gary Crosby, Janine Irons, and Cassie Kinoshi: the co-founders of Tomorrow’s Warriors alongside one of the programme’s graduates. Cassie is a prolific composer and musician, bandleader and alto saxophonist in London jazz supergroups Nérija, KOKOROKO and SEED. The discussion will be an open Q&A, free improv over hooks like these: what power does music have for a community? Is it for the players or the people? And why does music matter anyway?
