Film: RAHSAAN ROLAND KIRK: THE CASE OF THE THREE SIDED DREAM
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, at the apex of his career, 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.

This film by Adam Kahan takes you on a journey through Kirk's vibrant life and career.
