TOH! has scored a trailer exclusive to David L. Lewis’s DocNYC Grand Jury prize winner “The Pleasures of Being Out of Step.” The film centers on legendary jazz writer and civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, who’s now 88.
“Pleasures” opens on June 25 at the IFC Center in New York, via First Run Features. Here’s the official synopsis:
The Pleasures of Being Out of Step profiles legendary jazz
writer and civil libertarian Nat Hentoff, whose career tracks the greatest cultural and political movements of
the last 65 years. Powerfully narrated by actor Andre Braugher, the film is about an idea as well
as a man – the idea of free expression as the defining characteristic of the individual.
The doc is Lewis’s feature film debut.
