Keep On Keepin' On, the new documentary about trumpeter and St. Louis native Clark Terry and his student Justin Kauflin, is getting a St. Louis run starting this Friday, October 31 and continuing through the following Thursday, November 6 at the Tivoli Theater, 6350 Delmar.
The film tells the story of the relationship between the nonagenarian Terry and Kauflin, a blind pianist in his early twenties, and has received almost universally positive reviews since its release last month, including a rave from the New York Times. You can see the trailer for Keep On Keepin' On in the embedded video window at the bottom of this post.
To help promote the St. Louis run, the film's publicity firm is giving away a limited number of free tickets for the showings at 7:15 p.m. this Friday, October 31; 2:15 p.m. this Saturday, November 1; and 2:15 p.m. this Sunday, November 2. The free tickets are limited to two per person; to sign up, go here.
