I CALLED HIM MORGAN

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Recruited by Dizzy Gillespie at the age of 18, jazz musician Lee Morgan had all the promise of a legend—until he was shot dead by his wife Helen. A hybrid between a music doc and a true crime story, I Called Him Morgan immerses you in the jazz scene of the 1960s and the story of Morgan’s rise through the ranks, before delving into his mysterious relationship and its fatal climax. Stunning archival images and Bradford Young’s (known for his work with Oscar nominee Ava DuVernay) 16mm cinematography evoke both the cool and the cold of this true-life tale of jazz and murder.
