Full Frame welcomes John Brown, Duke's new Vice Provost for the Arts, with this encore virtual presentation of the festival's 2011 Jury Award Winner for Best Short, ONE NIGHT IN KERNERSVILLE (dir. Rodrigo Dorfman).

Immediately following the screening, John Brown will join Full Frame director Deirdre Haj in a conversation.

Director Rodrigo Dorfman's character study of jazz bassist John Brown reveals the musician's inner thoughts and soulfulness as he makes a big band recording in Kernersville, North Carolina. Well-paced, with crisp sound editing, the film swings you inside the notes and rhythms of artists committed to this music tradition. Reflected in Brown and crew's comments, and most importantly their "playin," is a work ethic that takes care of business. This is what jazz poetry looks like.
