We are thrilled to partner with the UK Jewish Film Festival for the first time. The festival brings Jewish films and stories to the heart of British culture through extraordinary screenings and events. Join us for the fascinating Jazz documentary, It Must Schwing – The Blue Note Story from producer Win Wenders (Paris, Texas). This stylish documentary focuses on the jazz label Blue Note, known in equal parts for their exceptional roster of artists that included Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk and their jazz buff founders Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff. Fleeing 1930s Germany to settle in New York, they made it their life’s work to give jazz the respect it deserved.
