Subtitled “Notes on the Life of Nat Hentoff,” this profile offers an extraordinary, intimate portrait of the writer who championed jazz as an art and who helped pioneer alternative journalism. Delving into Hentoff’s controversial positions as a civil libertarian and free speech advocate, the film features interviews with Amiri Baraka, Stanley Crouch and Floyd Abrams, with music by the jazz greats.
