DocHouse Presents: Milford Graves Full Mantis at Springs Cinema

Using experimental, rhythmic editing of archive performance footage, this documentary approaches the story behind Milford Graves.

Bertha Doc House presents: Milford Graves Full Mantis.
Milford Graves is an internationally renowned percussionist with a kaleidoscopic sound. This new documentary approaches the story behind his soulful, avant-garde music with experimental, rhythmic editing of archive footage and modern-day interviews.

The influence and drive of Graves’ musical power is the focal point for director Jake Meginsky, who met the artist 15 years ago when he showed up at his doorstep to ask to be mentored by Graves.

As Graves tells his own story – ruminating on the essence of ‘swing’ and activating electronic stethoscopes in his basement lab to process the sound of his heart – Megisnky paints a portrait of Graves’ world through poly-rhythmic cinema that never fails to miss a beat.

The screening will take place in Springs Cinema, the brand new cinema space at Peckham Springs on Tuesday 19th of March 2019.
