Gregory Porter: Don’t Forget Your Music

Gregory Porter Don’t Forget Your Music is an inspirational story of a unique musical talent. Told through candid interviews, and exclusive access-all-areas coverage, the story traces the Grammy-award winner’s journey to international fame.

There is no doubt Porter is special, his story is particularly poignant in the current American zeitgeist, yet Porter transcends to represent the next generation in the American Jazz story.
The camera loves Porter; he is a mountain of a man, softly spoken who strikes a sartorial presence in an eclectic mix of tailored suits, waistcoats and his now famous Jazz hat.

The documentary contains interviews and contributions from Porter’s family, music industry figures and some of the world’s most influential musicians.
In a time when the world and media is obsessed with making instant stars through reality TV and social media, this film shows that at the heart of success must be raw talent and self-belief.

“You have to experience life before you sing it”.
– Gregory Porter

Scenes from a Ferry by Alexander Ekman 2017

”We were seen as the perfect couple. No complications. Won’t you miss never to sleep with anyone but me? I am pregnant. What shall we do now? Do you want a divorce? I don’t know. I am totally confused.”

The internationally acclaimed Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman creates creates an experimental and improvised choreographic installation with movements, and a dialogue based on Ingmar Bergman’s praised TV- series from 1973 ’Scenes from a marriage’. The TV-series was broadcasted all over the world and created debate and controversy as it, based on Bergman’s own experiences, in an unusually frank manner exposed psychological tensions in a marriage.

The performance has never been rehearsed. The dancers only got brief instructions and some codes to follow. Alexander Ekman dances together with dancers from the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson has written most of the music in the flm and accompanies and improvises himself on a piano based on Ekman’s ideas and instructions.

Ingmar Bergman’s son Ingmar Bergman jr is executive producer, together with Marie-Louise Sid-Sylwander, rehearsal director at the Royal Swedish Ballet.

The installation was flmed during its first performance at the ‘Bergman Week’ festival in Fårö, Sweden.
