Synopsis: An upcoming drama directed by Dan Pritzker,  imagines the compelling, powerful and tragic journey of Buddy Bolden, the unsung American hero who invented Jazz.  With  little biographical information known and no found recordings of his music, the film’s narrative composes fragmented memories of his past, against the political and social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived. Starring Gary Carr as Bolden with original music written, arranged and performed by Wynton Marsalis,  BOLDEN invites you to experience a world fueled by passion, greed and musical genius, in early 1900s New Orleans.
