The Case of the Three Sided Dream. Animations for a documentary about legendary jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, directed by Adam Kahan. The animations illustrate audio recordings from live sets, quotes and private musings. Since Kirk was blind, the imagery focuses heavily on archetypal themes such as prenatal memories, transcendence, the cosmos, as well as jazz-age typography and aesthetics. Everything that is cool basically. Premiered at SXSW 2014. It was awarded Best Documentary at the Pan African Film Festival 2015. Produced by Blacklist.
