THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNKNOWN - A FILM ABOUT THE WAYNE SHORTER QUARTET -- 56 minutes
dir. Guido Lukoschek
Synopsis: "The language of the unknown“ faces the great saxophonist and his band with a concert footage, which originated on November 3, 2012, in the Salle Pleyel in Paris and observes the effect of the music on their creators, who are normally much too busy with creating the new rather than to deal with music already played. Thereby, surprising insights into the essence of their music open up, as well as the realization that true Creator-Spirit goes far beyond pure virtuosity.

When & Where
Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival
The Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival is dedicated to philosophy films that exemplify the pursuit of knowledge through the moving image. Films that guide us through the questions and speak to the human condition and ultimately ask more questions of the audience than try to answer. In short, the thinking man's cinema.
