In Theatres: KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON

keep onComing to theatres this Friday, October 3: KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON

Alan Hicks’ exploration of a musical, crossgenerational friendship premiered at Tribeca this Spring. It has gone on to screen at Hot Docs, London, Sydney, Telluride, Provincetown, and Newport Beach, among others.

Celebrating mentorship as much as music, Hicks’ inspirational and poignant film explores the common bonds between a 92-year-old jazz legend and his 23-year-old protégé. In his storied career, Clark Terry has played with luminaries like Count Basie and Duke Ellington, and counts Quincy Jones and Miles Davis among his past pupils. Now, as he mentors his latest student, blind piano prodigy Justin Kauflin, CT faces failing health while Justin tries to persevere despite severe stage fright that threatens his chances for a professional career.
