About Rewind & Play: Thelonious Monk

In Paris 1969, jazz legend Thelonious Monk records a spot for French television. Between takes, he is bombarded with questions. Cut together entirely from recently unearthed outtakes, Alain Gomis’ Rewind & Play provides a view from the other side, showing how Monk experienced racism during the event. The stark yet pointed edit by the French Senegalese director (Félicité) indicts not just the interviewer but more broadly the white institutions still upheld by pervasive racism today.
