Dingo

Including a rare filmic appearance by Miles Davis just months before his death in 1991, Rolf de Heer's DINGO captures the undying passion and vigorous spontaneity of jazz. On a dusty afternoon in 1969, the unexpected landing of a jet plane disturbs the isolated Australian outback town of Poona Flat. Youngster John "Dingo" Anderson is among the droves of townspeople who gather at the airport to witness the dreamlike event. The plane holds celebrated jazz trumpeter Billy Cross (Davis), and he and his band impulsively decide to play for the onlookers. Before his plane departs again, Cross gives a few words of encouragement to Dingo, who is awestruck by the performance. Twenty years later, Dingo, still thinking of Cross, has become quite the talented trumpeter himself. Yet Dingo's lack of money and his commitment to his wife and daughters have kept him from actively pursuing his aspirations of being a famous musician. As another birthday draws near, Dingo's patience starts to run out. But does he have the courage to follow his dream? – E.J.B.
