Zero Gravity

Zero Gravity is a cinematic ode to jazz legend, Wayne Shorter, from executive producer, Brad Pitt and directed by Dorsay Alavi. Depicted in 3 portals, the viewer is transported into prolific periods of Shorter's life and how through adversity, he grew to greatness, shattered the limitations of jazz, and became one of the most influential musicians and composers in American music.
This three episode series dropped on Amazon Prime (here) five days ago and is well worth your time. I watched the first 'portal' last night. At first it seems as if it might be a touch affected, but it is actually very artfully constructed from interviews, archive footage, and stylised dramatised sections.
