Abbey Rader: Get Free (2015)
Documentary (Short)
21 minutes

Abbey Rader: Get Free explores the journey of Abbey Rader, a jazz drummer, Buddhist and martial artist, who dedicated his life to the pursuit of spiritual freedom. His purpose was defined as a young musician in New York when, in the fertile mid-60s, he experienced the spiritual power of John Coltrane's quartet. From then on, he sought to release himself from all constrictions, musical or otherwise. His path brought him to a Buddhist master from China and jazz legends on both sides of the Atlantic. Fifty years later, his quest to perform and live in the moment continues.

Directed by Jorge Rubiera
