Directed by Larry Clark | 1977

With Nathaniel Taylor, Clarence Muse, Pamela Jones

Heralded as the greatest jazz film ever made, this exhilarating lost classic from LA Rebellion director Larry Clark, grapples with the commodification of black art via the story of a just-out-of-prison saxophonist (Taylor) who resists the advances of money-grubbing white industry execs as he embarks on a quest to find liberation through his music. Featuring music by greats like John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Sun Ra, Passing Through translates the expressive language of jazz into visual poetry.
