CAN I TELL YOU A STORY? The film screening and performance of “From a Door at The Center of a Table”

This event has passed.

Hamel Music Center
@ 6:00 pm


Please RSVP

Join us for a captivating film screening unlike any other, as we present “From a Door at The Center of a Table.” This unique event features a live micro-orchestra of improvisational jazz musicians, conducted by Grammy Award Winning Composer and Trumpet player, Keyon Harrold. Experience the journey of the film and its students, led by Interdisciplinary Artist in Residence, Marlon F. Hall, and hosted by Professor Faisal Abdu’Allah.

This ethnographic filmmaking process, known as a “visual poem,” is an original concept of Hall’s that moves from stanza to stanza, more like a sonnet, driven by the heartbeat of the storyteller, original music, and a shapeless love for human possibility. Join us for an unforgettable evening filled with creativity, exploration, and artistic expression.
