Series: Sonic Cinema
In 1986, harmonica player Adam Gussow asked if he could jam on the streets of Harlem with one-man-band Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee. Amidst NYC’s racial tension, this Jewish Ivy League graduate and black Mississippi bluesman, Satan & Adam, made an unlikely pair. After a chance encounter with members of U2 and a celebrated debut record, they rose to international acclaim—and then Mr. Satan mysteriously disappeared. This documentary, an odyssey 23 years in the making, captures a miraculous journey of friendship, heartbreak, and the transformative power of music.
