Drummer, avant-garde jazz visionary, inventor, heart researcher, martial arts renegade, and next-level gardener Milford Graves receives a documentary treatment as thrillingly unique and free-form as he is. 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.
