BIG EARS

Just Added: ‘Milford Graves: Full Mantis’

In addition to musical performances by pioneering improvisor and master percussionist Milford Graves, we are bubbling over with excitement to present Milford Graves Full Mantis, a blistering documentary featuring never-before-seen performance footage of the multi-instrumentalist by Jake Meginsky and Neil Young. After premiering at the 2018 International Film Festival Rotterdam, Milford Graves Full Mantis will offer an intimate glimpse into the artist’s singular voice and complex cosmology at Big Ears. This rare experience is not to be missed.
