CineCulture, Filmworks present ‘Chasing Trane’ May 12

Fresno State’s CineCulture film series and Fresno Filmworks will present two screenings of “Chasing Trane” at 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 12, at the Tower Theatre (815 E. Olive Ave.).

This documentary feature explores the life, work, and influence of jazz icon John Coltrane. Featuring interviews with legendary musicians such as Carlos Santana, Wynton Marsalis, and Common — and also featuring Coltrane’s own rare interviews, as narrated by Denzel Washington — the film chronicles the saxophonist and composer’s personal life and his contribution to music throughout his short yet powerful career. Using never-before-seen photos, home movies, and interviews, this film fully illustrates the life of the beloved Trane, one of jazz music’s biggest stars.

From documentary filmmaker John Scheinfeld, who directed “The U.S. vs. John Lennon” and documentaries on diverse subjects such as Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson and the Marx Brothers, “Chasing Trane” is not rated and is 99 minutes in length.

90.7 KFSR Radio is a screening sponsors for this film. Closed captioning and other assistive listening services are not available for this film. Tickets are $10 general and $8 for students and seniors.
