Ella Fitzgerald: Just One of Those Things Virtual Cinema
Carnegie Science Center
1 Allegheny Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15212

Thursday, June 25 from 9:00 pm to 8:59 pm

Carnegie Science Center

Eagle Rock Entertainment is delighted to announce the virtual cinema release of Ella Fitzgerald: Just One Of Those Things -- the much heralded, critically acclaimed documentary about the one-and-only “First Lady Of Jazz.” Originally scheduled to be released this past April in cinemas nationwide, the theatrical run of just One Of Those Things was cancelled due to COVID-19. Now, Eagle Rock invites movie lovers to see the film from home, even while supporting their local movie theaters. TV viewing apps are also available for AppleTV, Roku and AndroidTV. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Leslie Woodhead and produced by novelist Reggie Nadelson, Ella Fitzgerald: Just One Of Those Things reveals an intimate history of a beloved icon. Featuring never-before-seen footage, the film includes interviews with Smokey Robinson, Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, Itzhak Perlman, Norma Miller, the late Andre Previn, and a rare conversation with Ella Fitzgerald’s son, Ray Brown Jr. Ella Fitzgerald is a cherished American figure: her brilliant singing included unsurpassed scat vocalizations. She covered most of a century, excelling in Swing, Pop, Bebop and redefined the Great American Songbook. Her tenacity allowed her to break barriers and chart a powerful course as a woman of color in the male-dominated music business. She fought for Civil Rights. She earned 13 Grammys, the NAACP Equal Justice Award, and the American Black Achievement Award, among others, and sold over 40 million albums throughout her six-decade career.

Since leaving Unilever, he formed Imagine, whose goal is to help companies meet the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. He also served as chair of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and is currently chair of the International Chamber of Commerce.
