Upcoming Screening

D: Alan Hicks | USA | 2014 | 86 min

Legendary jazz trumpeter Clark Terry played alongside Charlie Barnet, Count Basie and Duke Ellington, and mentored a young Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. Now 93 and seemingly unstoppable, he continues to leave his indelible mark on music as he works with the next generation of young and emerging musicians. Through his mentorships, an unlikely bond occurs when blind piano prodigy Justin Kauflin begins to prepare for an international competition. Suffering from stage fright and fighting the stigma of his blindness, Justin relies heavily on Terry’s guidance and support. But as Terry’s health takes a turn for the worse and his own vision begins to fade, the men find themselves face to face with the biggest challenges of their lifetimes. What started as a student/teacher relationship develops into a lasting friendship of love.

Wednesday, January 7, 7:00 p.m.
