The Case of the Three Sided Dream tells the tale of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, a one of a kind musician, personality, satirist, and windmill-slayer who despite being blind, becoming paralyzed, and facing America’s racial injustices – did not relent. Adam Kahan’s artful and poignant documentary features spectacular performance footage of this dynamic artist.
Prior to the screening there will be a live jazz performance by Akua Dixon Quartet.
After the successful 2013 screening of Brasslands, Rooftop Films and Arts Brookfield team up this summer at Brookfield Place to present three festive nights of special screenings along the Waterfront Plaza.
