MILES AHEAD is a wildly entertaining and moving exploration of one of 20th century music’s creative geniuses, Miles Davis, featuring a career-defining performance by Oscar nominee Don Cheadle in the title role. Working from a script he co-wrote with Steven Baigelman, Cheadle’s bravura directorial debut is not a conventional biopic but rather a unique, no-holds-barred portrait of a singular artist in crisis.

There will be a Q&A by Special Guest:

Brownman Ali
Trinidadian-born jazz trumpet player Brownman Ali was heralded as “Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet” by New York’s Village Voice, and acknowledged as “Canada’s greatest interpreters of Miles Davis’ music” by the National Post.
