Nitehawk’s MUSIC DRIVEN presents a special screening of Bruce Weber’s LET’S GET LOST featuring a Q&A with director Bruce Weber and cinematographer Jeff Preiss.
Traveling with the elusive jazz vocalist and trumpeter Chet Baker, Bruce Weber weaves together the life story of a jazz great. The film uses excerpts from Italian B-movies, rare performance footage, and candid interviews with Baker, friends, battling ex-wives and his children in what turned out to be the last year of his life. Winner of the 1989 Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival and nominated for an Academy Award, Let’s Get Lost has become an important document in the career of the filmmaker on the life of a jazz legend. Since its release in 1989, Let’s Get Lost has introduced a whole new generation of jazz enthusiasts to the timeless talent of the late Chet Baker.
