Screening in the Tierney Theater
Immerse yourself in this remarkable cinematic event. The Way Forward is a portrait of a musical community brimming with talent, energy, and passion that continues to innovate.
The Way Forward took shape as the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world and quickly imposed a new reality for musicians and dancers. In March, the Colburn School in Los Angeles began to reimagine the traditional performance-going routine as a new cinematic experience. Faculty, alumni, and students from all units of the school, as well as guest artists, were enlisted to help realize this new vision.
Under the guidance of filmmaker Hamid Shams, The Way Forward was filmed around the world, from Finland to Australia, Spain to Los Angeles. Spanning jazz, classical, vocal, and dance, the film re-imagines the concert-going experience for the digital age.
Showtimes are Friday, July 24 and Sunday, July 26 from 2pm – 6pm, last showing at 5pm.
