WEDNESDAY NIGHT SPECIAL
Closing night of STF’s spring/summer season.
Winner of the DOC NYC Metropolis Grand Jury Prize.
A pioneer in music criticism, Nat Hentoff has spent more than six decades championing jazz in the pages of the Village Voice, The Wall Street Journal, Down Beat, and numerous other publications. Mirroring music’s free flow, he has also been an outspoken civil libertarian and free speech advocate, often taking principled, and idiosyncratic, positions that don’t always sit well with his readership. Director David L. Lewis’ profile reveals a singular figure who happily upends expectations in his pursuit of free expression.
Co-presented with DOC NYC.
