Weaving verite scenes of Carltons isolated, impoverished, yet
passionately dedicated existence with archival material and poignant
encounters with other artists, the film uncovers an untold story of cultural cross-pollination.
 
As the film progresses, intertwined stories emerge: a pre war African-American diaspora
 of jazz musicians who went to India, American Army presence in
Calcutta during WWII, Jazz in Bollywood and a vibrant and passionate jazz culture, and most of all,
the universal story of the working jazz musician. 
 
A jazz film that speaks from the heart. it combines musical perfromances and archival music  to accentuate a story that spans a historical arc from 1926 to the  1980s  
 
Finding Carlton revives the intense power of a largely undocumented jazz movement.
