Sala Grande
by Jørgen Leth e Andreas Koefoed

(2022, Danimarca, 90')

Leth and Koefoed take you straight into the world of jazz with this film, whose title references single from Jakob Bro’s album Uma Elmo (2021). What happens when diverse musicians with crazy ideas on music are put to work together? Music talks, and it invites us to understand the individual performer’s vocabulary and the steps it takes to make collective, polyphonic, stimulating creations. Lee Konitz, Bill Frisell, Paul Motian, Mark Turner, and Jakob Bro are but a few names that made it into a movie that feels like a genuine interview exploring little-known facts of their personal and professional lives.
