Directed by Jeffrey Morse and Dorothy Darr, the latter who is Charles Lloyd's painter/filmmaker wife, the documentary Charles Lloyd: Arrows Into Infinity chronicles the influential saxophonist and composer's life and career range.

Arrows Into Infinity, which will cover the musicians' Memphis roots and counterculture crossover in the 60's, will premiere at this year's 19th Annual Chicago Black Harvest Film Festival, which has unveiled its lineup (see our post HERE).

Here's more about the film:

Charles Lloyd was one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 1960s. His music crossed traditional boundaries and explored new territories. Catapulted into worldwide fame in his 20s, by his early 30s, he abandoned his life of touring and recording and went into seclusion in Big Sur, CA. Circumstance brought him back to a public life in the late 1980s.

'Arrows Into Infinity' is a journey in... sound through the unusual life and career of this jazz legend. Lloyd's own voice, and those who worked with him over the last five decades help us discover and better understand this enigmatic man and his spiritual pursuit through music. This film is a collaborative work between Lloyd's wife Dorothy Darr; a painter, and videographer/filmmaker, Jeffery Morse.
