1x 90 min CREATIVE DOCUMENTARY PROJECT IN DEVELOPMENT

The film documents breath...
Within breath one finds music, spirituality, death. How has the practice of music become a way of finding harmony for Zim Ngqawana?

Zim is an avant-garde musician, celebrated in South Africa and internationally reknowned in the jazz scene. The ZIM ODYSSEY narrates his musical journey: from being a novice, then becoming a student, practicing as a musician and finally transforming into a teacher of a philosophical project, named Zimology or the inner path of reaching oneself.

Using the wind as narrator, the documentary is composed by the different interviews of Zim, from historical and personal footage including the last rehearsal shot several hours before passing away. Furthermore the encounters with his musical collaborators as well as truth seekers, those he was inspired of and those he inspired in the search of the Self, will complete the overall documentary.

This poetic film is a clash between jazz, Sufism and astrophysics; a meditation on music as a way of wisdom : a documentation of a man, despite the headwinds, which found his path…
