Keep on Keepin On giving some truth on RTR Fm

Keep On Keepin’ On (USA) will replace Records Collecting Dust at RTRFM’s upcoming music documentary festival, Gimme Some Truth, which returns for the second year in 2014.

RTRFM is excited to share Keep On Keepin’ On with Perth audiences, following the film’s inclusion in the 2014 Melbourne International Film Festival and Sydney Film Festival

An ailing jazz legend passes the torch to a blind piano prodigy in this award-winning ode to the bonds of music and friendship. Jazz musician Clark Terry played trumpet alongside all-time greats Duke Ellington and Count Basie, broke the race barrier as part of NBC’s Tonight Show band, and went on to mentor music icons Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones. His new, blind protégé, Justin Kauflin, yearns to follow in Terry’s footsteps.

This touching and inspirational documentary scored Australian director Alan Hicks the Best New Documentary Director Award at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, as well as the Audience Award for Documentary.

Paula DuPre’ Pesmen (behind the Academy Award-winning The Cove and the Oscar-nominated Chasing Ice) produced the film, alongside seven-time Academy Award nominee Quincy Jones, who also counts Terry as his mentor.

Showcasing eight films over six days, Gimme Some Truth will feature two Australian premieres (Deep City: The Birth of the Miami Sound, Beautiful Noise), one world premiere (No Encore), plus an exciting collection of Western Australian shorts.

Films screen daily from Friday, 5 December through to Thursday, 11 December at Luna Cinemas Leederville and Luna Outdoor.
