Cool Cats - Interview with Janus Køster-Rasmussen
02:42 / 6. oktober 2015
Interview with Janus Køster, director of Cool Cats, which premieres at CPH:DOX 2015.

'Cool Cats' tells the story of two jazz giants who are forced to relocate to a musical smalltown. In the mid-1960s, tenor saxophone stars Ben Webster and Dexter Gordon leave behind America and its fierce political climate – as well as a long trail of heavy alcohol and heroin abuse. They settle down in Copenhagen, where they are greeted as musical saviors. But the attractions of the small, fairy tale-like Scandinavian capital soon turn out to be a threat to their music – and their lives.

The film's visual backbone consists of Ben Webster's own 8MM footage which resurfaces here for the first time.
