NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE | Gifted jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney was anointed as Miles Davis’s protege by Davis himself. A recently rediscovered orchestral jazz suite by Wayne Shorter—written in 1966 for Davis but never performed—compels the talented Roney to convene an orchestra worthy of performing this complex work. Can they rise to Roney’s commitment to excellence? Directors Sam Osborn and Nick Capezzera gift us with this moving testimony on what it’s like to be in love with and uncompromising in your art.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Nick Capezzera, Sam Osborn (Directors), immediately following the film.
