UK Premiere: Hargrove (15) + ScreenTalk

Doc'n Roll


Music icons including Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Questlove, Sonny Rollins, and Yasiin Bey pay tribute to Hargrove’s artistry, impact and legacy

Filmed in Paris, Sète, Vienne, Perugia, Sorrento, Marseille, Los Angeles, Dallas and New York, this film features stunning live performances by Hargrove in the last year of his life. An epic love letter from first time director Eliane Henri, leading voices in the field of jazz portray Roy as a musical prophet and reflect on the magic of his music. Key conversations reverberate beyond Roy’s personal story and enter the terrain of what it means to be an artist, particularly in the American context.

This film expands to explore questions of race and exploitation in the industry as well as the multi-dimensional layers of Black music perspectives, led by some of the most revered voices in Black music today. 

Director Eliane Henri will join us for a virtual ScreenTalk after the film.
