Tenor saxophonist Kamasi Washington’s short film, As Told to G/D Thyself, which is inspired by his most recent album, Heaven and Earth, released on the Young Turks label in June, will premiere in January 2019 at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The film was directed by a collective called the Ummah Chroma, including Washington, cinematographer Bradford Young, writer and director Terence Nance, filmmaker Jenn Nkiru, and director Marc Thomas.

Along with debuting the film, Washington will also play a show early next year at New York’s Apollo Theater in partnership with Afropunk. The Feb. 23 show will headline the venue’s “Race Music” weekend, featuring a number of film screenings in partnership with ImageNation Cinema Foundation, Firelight Media, and more.

For more information about the Apollo show and to buy tickets, go here.

As Told to G/D Thyself will not be the only jazz-related film to premiere at Sundance; it was recently announced that a documentary on Miles Davis called Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool will be screened for the first time at the festival.
