This moving exploration of one of 20th century music’s creative geniuses features a career defining performances by Oscar nominee Don Cheadle. Working from a script he co-wrote with Steven Baigelman, Cheadle’s bravura directional debut is a no-holds barred portrait of an artist in crisis. In the midst of a prolific career at the forefront of deteriorating hip, his musical voice stifled by drugs and pain medications, his mind haunted by ghosts from the past. Wily music reporter Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor) forces his way into Davis’ house and, over the next couple of days, the two men unwittingly embark on a wild and sometimes harrowing adventure to recover a stolen tape of the musician’s latest compositions.

The Devil’s Horn is a celebration of the astonishing history of the saxophone and its longstanding curse that stemmed from the difficult life and of its mad inventor Adolphe Sax-genius who both thrived and suffered – near assassination, life-threatening disease and eventual penury. Said to affect saxophonists who fall prey to the instrument’s dark powers The Devil’s Horn features an array of unusual and very talented characters who have devoted their lives to their powerfully seductive instrument. Our sax players embody many aspects of the saxophone’s past – political and religious censorship, drug use, extreme artistic experimentation, forbidden sexuality and spiritual mysticism.

In those two decades both she and the songs from Tigerlily have matured. Natalie’s entire musical life is encapsulated in this very personal film, which digs deep into the music through live performances, archival footage, and interviews. Her fellow musicians, friends and impassioned fans share how the song of Tigerlily have influenced them over the past 20 years, and speak to how the power of music itself affects us in profound, lasting, and uplifting ways.
