A kaleidoscope of sound and image edited to its own internal polyrhythms, Milford Graves Full Mantis blends cosmically philosophical interviews with the artist, jaw-dropping archival footage, kung fu interludes, and bioacoustic demonstrations into a spellbinding portrait of an inspiring, one-of-a-kind renaissance man. Plus, when you purchase a ticket, you’ll receive access to two never-before-seen clips of Milford Graves.
