"Bang! Let's go on. Like Louis Pasteur. They ain't fucked with the milk since then, except maybe diluted it a little bit." Sunny Murray
Antoine Prum's documentary retraces the rough-and-tumble career of influential free jazz drummer Sunny Murray. Alternating interviews with key witnesses (including Cecil Taylor, Val Wilmer, Robert Wyatt, William Parker, Grachan Moncur III) with exclusive concert footage, it reassesses the intricate relationships between the libertarian music movement and the political climate of the 1960s.
After the screening there will be a Q&A with the director plus sax improv ace Tony Bevan and Wire magazine editor Tony Herrington.
