Kind words about Finding Carlton from Alice …
“Finding Carlton is a true labor of love. One doesn’t think of the words jazz and India as going together, but Susheel Kurien’s heartwarming documentary takes us on an unexpected journey. Great musicians and fantastic playing are universal. Finding Carlton is absorbing and eye-opening.”
