Abraham Ravett

Forgotten Tenor (1994) 16mm, color, 136 min

Genre: Experimental

On VHS. $75 for rental and $150 for (organization/college) purchases. "Demonstrating the process of oral history, avant-documentarian, Abraham Ravett constructs the life of a largely unknown bebop saxophonist out of a few film traces, some fading memories, and a handful of soaring records. All that's missing from this self-interrogating, experimental bio pic is the story of Ravett's own fascination with the material -- but then that's the movie itself." -- J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
