Amazingly authentic, the film Open Land offers an unforgettably intimate portrait of its protagonist, jazz legend John Abercrombie who died in August 2017. This wonderful encounter is as poetic and atmospherically dense as Abercrombie’s music. A labour of love and deep admiration Open Land is a subtle and very personal portrait that gives an insight into the life and work of this outstanding artist. To glimpse genius on such an intimate level is nothing short of revelatory.
