Independent Lens

Independent Lens, Chasing Trane

Independent Lens, Chasing Trane

Saturday, March 30, at 10:30 p.m.
Repeats Sunday, March 31, at 3 a.m.

Also airs on Fusion on Saturday, March 16, at 7 p.m.

Set against the social, political and cultural landscape of the times, “Chasing Trane” brings saxophone great John Coltrane to life, as a man and as an artist. Written and directed by John Scheinfeld, it is the definitive look at the boundary-shattering musician whose influence continues to this day.

The documentary reveals the critical events, passions, experiences and challenges that shaped Coltrane’s life and his revolutionary sounds. It is a story of demons and darkness, of persistence and redemption. Above all, it recounts the spiritual journey of a man who found himself and, in the process, created an extraordinary body of work that transcends all barriers of geography, race, religion and age.
