RAHSAAN ROLAND KIRK:
THE CASE OF THE THREE SIDED DREAM
SET FOR JUNE 11, 8:00 PM, AT IFC CENTER
Directed by Adam Kahan, the film tells the story of Kirk, who went from a blind infant, to child prodigy, to adult visionary, political activist, and finally to paralyzed showman who toured and played music until the day he died (December 5, 1977).
