Ornette: Made in America

Instrueret af Shirley Clarke
USA, 1985
Dokumentar, Biografi


“Whatever the idea is, it’s never something you can just tell to another person and be sure that they know what you mean, so  … just play the music.” That’s how Ornette Coleman put it, and that’s how Shirley Clarke shot Ornette: Made in America, her portrait of Coleman.

Ornette: Made in America Instrueret af Shirley Clarke
It eschews historical context for the immediacy of performance, making it more of a piece for fans rather than newcomers to Coleman’s work. But it is a rare peek into Coleman’s artistic process – which means it is a glimpse into the mind of one of the greatest and most influential artists of the twentieth century.

Though Ornette: Made in America is hardly a straight-up biographical doc — its looping structure and three-legged-dog rhythms make it more like an Ornette composition than a conventional movie — it’s the place to go to unlock some of the most precious secrets of Ornette.

Clarke spent over twenty years filming and collecting footage of Coleman at vividly different stages of his life and career, recording everything from raucous concerts and prestigious gala events to experimental re-enactments of his childhood and an avant-garde music video made by artist Kit Fitzgerald. Clarke’s film isn’t a biography in any conventional sense, but one that adopts Coleman’s freewheeling, exploratory and intuitive approach to his music and applies it to cinema.
