“The Case of the Three Sided Dream”
World premiere at South by Southwest film festival
Rahsaan Roland Kirk was a one of a kind musician, personality, satirist and windmill-slayer who despite being blind, becoming paralyzed, and facing America’s racial injustices – did not relent.
His life’s work was exploring sound and making music. Beyond that, he was an outspoken activist who started a political movement to get more exposure for Jazz in America – particularly on TV.
At the age of 40, Rahsaan suffered a stroke which left him half paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music, with the use of only one hand, literally until the day he died.

"We hope you stay on the case. Don't get inside the case 'cause if you get inside the case, they'll shut the case up on you and you'll never get out again."
