Nothing Here is Perfect is an experimental documentary film about improvised music. Featuring a cast of nearly 40 singers and players, fragments of sound and picture from more than a dozen performances at London’s Cafe Oto are woven into an entirely new creation. As the music ebbs and flows, a narrator tells a tale of discovery and resistance. These opaque melodies, performed with the conviction and fervour of worship, will never be perfect. Yet they offer safety and harmony in a frightening and chaotic world.
Featuring Evan Parker, Eddie Prévost, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, John Edwards, Peter Brötzmann, Chris Corsano, John Tilbury and many more.
