Milford Graves Full Mantis

The first feature-length portrait of the renowned percussionist who has performed internationally since 1964, both as a soloist and in ensembles with such legends as Albert Ayler, Giuseppi Logan and Sonny Sharrock. Graves is a founding pioneer of avant-garde jazz, and remains one of the most influential living figures in the evolution of the form. Oscillating from present to past and weaving intimate glimpses of the artist’s complex cosmology with blistering performances from around the globe, the film embodies the intensity of Graves’ music itself.
