Milford Graves Full Mantis Screening
Sheffield Doc/Fest, with support from the BFI, is running Doc/Circuit, a new initiative which aims to develop regional audiences for independent documentary films. The circuit will be coming around to the DCA for a screening of Milford Graves Full Mantis, this Friday, August 31st at 7pm.
The film is the first ever feature-length portrait of renowned percussionist Milford Graves, exploring his kaleidoscopic creativity and relentless curiosity. Graves has performed internationally since 1964 and is a founding pioneer of avant-garde jazz – he remains one of the most influential living figures in the evolution of the form.
