Milford Graves Full Mantis is a portrait of renowned percussionist Milford Graves, exploring his kaleidoscopic creativity and relentless curiosity. The film draws the viewer through Graves’ lush garden and ornate home, into the martial arts dojo in his backyard and the laboratory in his basement - all of this just blocks from where he grew up in South Jamaica, Queens. Oscillating from past to present with blistering performances from around the globe, Milford Graves Full Mantis is cinema full of fluidity, polyrhythm and intensity. 

Followed by a Q&A with director Jake Meginsky hosted by music Journalist Stewart Smith (Wire, The Quietus, The List).
