Documentary – 1991

 

Produced by Hans Hylkema, Han Bennink, Misha Mengelberg

A documentary about the life of Eric Dolphy.

Extended conversations with colleagues, friends and families.

A beautiful portrait of a singular artist.

It starts a little slow, but when it gets to the people who knew him and his dedication to music study growing up in Los Angeles, it sings. (Around 18:30.)
