A brief history of African American photography in the company of filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris. "A family memoir, a tribute to unsung artists and a lyrical, at times, heartbroken, meditation on imagery and identity. Harris marshals an impressive collection of scholars, artists and photojournalists to help us understand what we see… He is a wise and passionate guide to an inexhaustibly fascinating subject."

AO Scott, The New York Times

"A sweeping narrative that traces from the 19th century to the 21st how African-Americans presented themselves in their own photos."

David Gonzalez, The New York Times online

"An extraordinary new documentary by filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris, is at-once a deep, rich dive into the history of African American photography and - transcending the subject at hand - a master class in visual literacy."

Mia Tramz, Time Magazine

Meet "the happiest sound in jazz" - and maybe the brightest mentor, too. Clark Terry was Dizzy Gillespie’s favourite trumpet player, but he’s also an inspirational teacher - the antithesis of the character played by JK Simmons in Whiplash. At 93, Terry is still teaching, taking blind 23-year-old piano prodigy Justin Kauflin under his arm, just as he did with Quincy Jones and Miles Davis before him.

"Consider it this year’s “Rocky” of documentaries: a heartfelt, uplifting tale that celebrates the joy of life and the triumphs of succeeding against all odds. The film stands as a loving tribute to the affable 93-year-old Terry, who performed in the bands of both Count Basie and Duke Ellington and seems to have influenced just about every jazz giant on the planet… One need not be a jazz aficionado to enjoy this film. All that’s required is a smile." David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

Keep On Keepin’ On is ultimately an examination of the pursuit of greatness. It is a grueling and demanding endeavor, for sure, but also, for Mr. Terry and anyone lucky enough to enter his orbit, a source of unending joy." AO Scott, New York Times

"As joyful as a jumping jazz riff, Keep on Keepin’ On is an inspiring story of devotion, dedication and multi-generational friendship." Linda Bernard, Toronto Star
