About the film:
The movie by Elizabeth Ok is a colorful piece of artwork about an extraordinary person, a genius with a fine sense of humor and a lot of enthusiasm. It also shows a complicated and tempting love story of an unconventional couple like Carlo and Anita, in Germany of the fifties. Last but not least, it is a hymn to freedom and jazz music. The Jazzkeller helped to build true relationships across countries after the painful experience of Second World War. The Movie shows how music and enthusiasm can overcome borders and bring people together. It seems that the motto of jazz musicians: keep swingin which helped in difficult times is still applicable today.
We look forward to seeing you there!
