Directed by Adam Kahan, the film tells the story of Kirk, who went from a blind infant, to child prodigy, to adult visionary, political activist, and finally to paralyzed showman who toured and played music until the day he died (December 5, 1977).
Take part in a post-film discussion with Kahan, Dorthaan Kirk – Rahsaan’s widow and a founding member of WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM – and trombonist Steve Turre, Kirk’s long-time friend and band member.
