SATURDAY 10/23, 5:30 PM (SESSION 5)

Director/Producer: Dale Djerassi

Description:

Two powerful forces in the world of jazz come together in this lively film. Airto Moreira, a world renowned percussionist from Brazil meets the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Mardi Gras morning in New Orleans. The musical alchemy of this meeting reignites the acclaimed musician’s passion to play and from there they laissez les bons temps ruler. This is music as medicine for the soul!

Biography:

Dale Djerassi, president of Djerassi Films Inc, has produced and directed several documentary films including Nada Será Como Antes (Nothing Will Be As It Was), about the return of jazz musicians Flora Purim and Airto Moreira to Brazil, Bhutan -- A Strange Survival, the story of a unique Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas, and Oil on Ice, a documentary connecting the fate of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to decisions America makes about energy policy, transportation choices, and other seemingly unrelated matters (IDA Pare Lorentz Award winner). He co-produced (with Barbet Schroeder) Koko -- The Talking Gorilla, a feature-length documentary about the famed sign language-speaking gorilla. He also produced '68, an independent feature film set in San Francisco in the turbulent year of 1968. Additionally, Djerassi produced three plays -- An Immaculate Misconception at the Eureka Theatre Company in San Francisco and Primary Stages in New York, Calculus at the Performing Arts Library & Museum in San Francisco, and Lies Have Been Told at Trafalgar Studios in London. Djerassi received a bachelor of arts degree in political science from Stanford University where he also studied documentary film production.
