Tribeca 2014: Keep on Keepin’ On – Red Carpet Premiere Photos
We attended the red carpet premiere for Keep on Keepin’ On, a film by first-time director, Australian drummer Alan Hicks.
The film follows director Alan Hicks as he spends four years studying the unique mentorship that exists between jazz legend Clark Terry and his blind piano prodigy Justin Kauflin. Clark Terry is a prominent and legendary figure in the jazz world, known for mentoring folks such as Miles Davis and Quincy Jones (producer of this documentary as well). The story follows Kauflin and Terry at pivotal moments in their lives. As Kauflin takes up the challenge against his stage fright to take part in an international competition, Terry’s health takes a turn for the worse when he suddenly loses his sight, further strengthening the bond between student and teacher. The film takes us on a journey to understand the relationship between mentor and student, and see the passing of the torch from a legend to what could possibly be his last student.
The films world premiere was attended by the who’s who of the music and film world, including music legend Quincy Jones and veteran actress Whoopi Goldberg. See all the photos from the red carpet premiere below.
