Django Reinhardt broke new ground in the 1930s. The Romani guitarist had just three fingers (his chording hand was injured in a fire), but he played like he had six. Filmmaker Étienne Comar shows how Django's "hot jazz" got France swinging, even as the Nazis advanced and minorities like him were doomed to the concentration camps. The movie Django recreates this era and Django's audacious escape out of Paris. It screens at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (January 19 to 21) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; Tickets are $5 to $7.
