Closeness (Danilo Parra | Bronx, NY | 22 min.)

They say faith is the belief in things unseen. In this beautiful and moving documentary about Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre, a nearly forgotten 74-year-old jazz musician, we see years of struggle - of an artist unable to do anything but make music, of his own push and pull with drugs, against getting older. The film centers on the recording of his album Closeness, which abstractly tells the story of his love for his wife, nearly 30 years his junior.
