Where did you watch this movie?

A bygone age of jazz in India, told through the moving portrait of one of its last survivors, the bebop guitarist Carlton Kitto. Weaving verite scenes of Carlton's isolated, impoverished, yet passionately dedicated existence with archival material and poignant encounters with other artists, an untold story of cultural cross-pollination emerges: pre-war African-American diaspora, American Army presence in Calcutta during World War II, Jazz in Bollywood and US State Department sponsored jazz tours in India. Musical performances and archival music accentuate a story that spans a historical arc from 1926 to the 1980s Finding Carlton revives the intense power of a largely undocumented jazz movement.
