Event Details

(2019, USA, 90 min)
Directed by Leslie Woodhead
From a 1934 talent contest at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, the film follows Ella’s extraordinary journey across five decades as she reflects the passions and troubles of the times in her music and her life.
In support of #BlackLivesMatter, 10% of the ticket sales AVFS received from this screening will be donated to Project Involve, an initiative of Film Independent dedicated to the ongoing fight to build a more inclusive and equitable industry by supporting emerging filmmakers from underrepresented communities. It pairs participants with mentors at the top of their respective fields and provides hands-on filmmaking experience from pre-production through premiere. 

Also, we are pleased to announce an update to the live Q&A on Sunday, June 28, at 7pm ET/4pm PT. We are very excited to announce that producer Reggie Nadelon and author/music critic Will Friedwald will now be joined by author Margo Jefferson and singer Camille Thurman.
Margo Jefferson is a distinguished culture critic and author of the acclaimed book Negroland. 
Camille Thurman, a singer and saxophone player, is a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
