Director: Anaïs Ngbanzo
2023 / 95min / DCP
Making its world premiere at Metrograph, Ngbanzo’s directorial debut is the first documentary devoted to the life and work of the late composer, pianist, singer, and pioneer of musical minimalism Julius Eastman. Previously unseen interviews and recordings from Eastman’s archive reveal the political dimension of Eastman’s practice, while extensive footage of Devonté Hynes rehearsing and performing a selection of Eastman-penned pieces offers an exhilarating showcase for the work of this still-too-little-known 20th-century master.
Introduction +Q&A with Anaïs Ngbanzo & Devonté Hynes, moderated by Jonathan Hepfer
