Directed by Bertrand Tavernier | 1986

With Dexter Gordon, François Cluzet, Herbie Hancock

“In a certain sense, this movie teaches you everything about jazz that you really need to know.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

In conjunction with BAM and Greenlight Bookstore’s Unbound series and the launch of Herbie Hancock’s memoir Possibilities, BAMcinématek presents a special screening of Round Midnight. While living in Paris in the 1950s, an alcoholic jazzman (real-life saxophone great Dexter Gordon, who was nominated for an Academy award for his role in this film) befriends an enthusiastic fan who tries to save him from his self-destructive ways. One of the all-time great jazz pictures, Round Midnight radiates authenticity thanks to Gordon’s lived-in performance, thrilling musical appearances by legends like Bobby Hutcherson and Wayne Shorter, and Hancock’s Oscar-winning score.
