Directed by Shirley Clarke | 1985

With Ornette Coleman, William S. Burroughs

"Saxophonist, trumpeter, violinist—you name the musical instrument, and supreme stylist Coleman will make magic with it."
—The New York Times

The great experimental filmmaker Shirley Clarke painted this portrait of avant-garde jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman—who was once asked by NASA to compose music to coincide with their space program. Clarke blends thrilling performance excerpts, futuristic music videos, and imaginative reenactments of Coleman's childhood, resulting in an invigorating document of a unique artist and original thinker.
