Jazz À La Mode Film Series
Presented in collaboration with New England Public Radio, with expert commentary by NEPR Jazz À La Mode Host Tom Reney.
Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, LOW DOWN is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction. Director Jeff Preiss live in person!
