Vertical Air is the result of a close bond between music and cinema testifying the many relationships between the two. It is visualized through American iconographic imagery and graphics combined with the great evocative power of ad libbing by the trumpet player Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, a leading light of American free jazz. The music is an exclusive composition and the only comment on Fenzs camerawork.
