POSSIBILITIES is an intimate documentary about Herbie Hancock and his in-studio collaborations with a dozen formidable pop recording artists, collaborations that explore the unexpected, like jazz improvisations.

The film is also about how Herbie’s unique worldview shapes a creative environment that encourages artists to step outside the velvet prison of easy expectations. “The hip stuff,” Herbie tells Trey Anastasio, in a scene from the film, “is outside the comfort zone.”

POSSIBILITIES follows Herbie over a year and a half collaborating with musical icons Carlos Santana, Sting, Angelique Kidjo, Annie Lennox and Paul Simon, young superstars Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, Trey Anastasio and Jonny Lang and newcomers Joss Stone, Raul Midon, Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan

The film also puts Herbie’s latest work in the context of his extraordinary musical career, and includes rarely seen archival footage of Herbie with the Miles Davis Quintet in 1962; Herbie leading his Headhunters with their hit tune, “Chameleon”; Herbie’s classic video for “Rockit”; and never-before-seen duets of Herbie and Wayne Shorter playing for peace in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 2005 on the 60th anniversary of the atomic explosions.

CAST

 

"Doug Biro and Jon Fine's documentary portrays the intense and collaborative efforts that went into each track in a way that is both intimate and far reaching." - Laura Kern, New York Times

"The film is the portrait of a kind and giving man open to all positive ideas that come his [Herbie Hancock] way." - Phil Gallo, Variety.com

“Filled with great archival footage from throughout Hancock's five-decade career, and with elder-statesman words of wisdom from the man himself, Possibilities celebrates an impulse that's too rare in modern music: the love behind the labor of creation." - Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly
