Be Known::The Mystery of Kahil El’Zabar

The acting dynamo couple of Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance have jointly come on board as executive producers on filmmaker and screenwriter Dwayne Johnson-Cochran’s riveting documentary Be Known: The Mystery of Kahil El’Zabar, about the legendary avant garde jazz musician.

The film, which was recently screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago back in January, and at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, will have another sneak preview again in Chicago at the DuSable Museum on Saturday May 10, 2014 at 7PM.

Co produced and edited by Christopher Scott Cherot (Hav Plenty, G, Mooz-Lum), the film chronicles the day-by-day, gig–to-gig struggle and harried life of a working musician, one of the world’s leading jazz percussionists, who literally moves to the beat of different drummer.

World renowned as an innovator in jazz music, the film is truly a “warts and all” exploration of the life and career of an artist who has been “modern jazz’s best kept secret” for decades, but who is not prefect in his professional and private life, as El’Zavbar will candidly admit himself.

Both Bassett and Vance, in presenting the film, have said that Kahil El’Zabar is a brilliant artist and we are proud to present Dwayne’s film be known to the world.

In addition, before the The DuSable screening, El’Zabar’s will be knighted as a Chevalier de L’Ordre Des Arts et Lettres of the Government of France, to take place at the French Consulate in Chicago on Monday May 5th.
