Event Type

French-Senegalese master filmmaker Alain Gomis rediscovers a musical treasure: a 1969 performance by the great Thelonious Monk and a revelatory television interview. This behind-the-scenes music documentary reveals the casual racism illustrated in this interview, interwoven with Monk as you’ve never seen him before.

See it at Orpheum Theatre April 26 + 27 and hear the film how it’s meant to be—sensationally loud and clear on our new speakers.
