Home Away From Home (NYC screening) dir. Amandine Pras / Q+A / Improv Set

-HOME AWAY FROM HOME-

In January 2015, two musicians from the New York alternative jazz scene, Michael Attias (alto saxophone) and Jim Black (drums), freely improvise with two maestros of Northern Indian classical music, Subhajyoti Guha (tabla) and Sougata Roy Chowdhury (sarod). The film alternates the resulting music with discussions about mutual influencing, shared understanding and misunderstanding, the need for traditions to evolve, and for thinking beyond musical genres. Directed by Amandine Pras, this psychological and cultural journey was possible thanks to the involvement of Jonathan Kay and Andrew Kay and thus opens paths for deep reflection upon the digital era and the globalisation of the notion of creation.
