VINCE GIORDANO: THERE'S A FUTURE IN THE PAST

Post-screening Q&A with Vince Giordano moderated by NPR's Rob Bamberger, plus live musical performance by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks

Vince Giordano is responsible for the period music in Todd Haynes' CAROL, Martin Scorsese's THE AVIATOR, Francis Ford Coppola's THE COTTON CLUB, Terry Zwigoff's GHOST WORLD, half-a-dozen Woody Allen films and HBO's Grammy®-winning BOARDWALK EMPIRE soundtrack. Who is the eccentric musician who has kept the past alive with his 11-piece big band The Nighthawks, a collection of 60,000-plus band arrangements and a houseful of vintage instruments? Giordano's dedication has kept this cultural phenomenon on life support through hard times, and a new generation of hot jazz virtuosos are laying claim to this joyful, energetic music.
