Description

"A film that Miles himself would recognize - truthful, gritty, elegantly musical, unpredictable and even surprising - the kind of complex yet elegiac tribute a man as relentlessly real as Miles Davis deserves." - San Francisco Chronicle

"You'll want to listen to Miles' music after watching the film and, when you do, you might feel it a little deeper." - Los Angeles Times

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Toronto International Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival

Miles Davis: horn player, bandleader, innovator. Miles was a singular force of nature, the very embodiment of cool. The central theme of Miles Davis' life, and of this film is Davis' restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. Through archival photos and home movies shot by Miles and his colleagues, his manuscripts and Miles's original paintings, the man behind the music is explored. Featuring interviews with Jimmy Cobb, Lee Konitz, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Carlos Santant, The Roots, and Flea; Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool explores why Miles continues to be a relevant voice in today's world.
