: The Case of the Three Sided Dream, a documentary on the world-renowned multi- instrumentalist, at IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue at Third Street in Manhattan, on Wednesday, June 11, at 8:00 pm.
Directed by Adam Kahan, the film tells the story of Kirk, who went from a blind infant, to child prodigy, to adult visionary, political activist, and finally to paralyzed showman who toured and played music until the day he died (December 5, 1977).
