A Closer Walk With

by Yi Cui (2009, 12 minutes)

♥ WE WILL LEAVE UP THE LINK FOR ACCESS. SCROLL DOWN…

Here is an unusual example of a perfect Jazzistry-style blend of history, art and jazz. This rare, independent film is a story of time and farewells. Starring Vincent York, it reveals hidden gifts and shadows of the past. Filmed prior to the MI Central Train Station’s rescue by the Ford Motor Company (in 2018), it is a memorable double portrait. By Yi Cui, former UM student, JAZZistry volunteer and film student at York University (no relation) in Canada. Yi, an award-winning filmmaker, now teaches at Colgate University. When she learned that the glorious building has since been saved from the wrecking ball she said, “Perhaps the magic of music has something to do with this wonderful resurrection.”
