“The Case of the Three Sided Dream” World Premiere at SXSW Film Festival
(Published: February 13, 2014)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The feature documentary film on the music and life of multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk makes its world premiere at the South by Southwest film festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, March 10-15, 2014.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk was 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.

His life's work was exploring sound and making music. Beyond that, he was an outspoken activist who started a political movement to get more exposure for Jazz in America - particularly on TV.

Dreams were important to Rahsaan. They planted the seed in his mind to play three horns simultaneously. His name came from dreams. When asked about his religious beliefs, he would say: "I'm from the Religion of Dreams".

At the age of 40, Rahsaan suffered a stroke which left him half paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music, with the use of only one hand, literally until the day he died.

"We hope you stay on the case. Don't get inside the case 'cause if you get inside the case, they'll shut the case up on you and you'll never get out again."
-Rahsaan Roland Kirk
