I'm Stanley Nelson, director of the Grammy-nominated music documentary “Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool.” I'm here to talk all things MILES. So, ask me anything!
It was a ten-year journey for me to bring Miles' story to the screen, and the reception to Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool has been a highlight of my 30 years making films. Since its premiere at Sundance last year, the film has grossed more than $1 million worldwide, with fans from all over the world being touched by his story. It was an honor to make this film, on one of my favorite musicians of all-time. I'm excited for all of you to be able to watch it on February 25th at 9pm ET on PBS. Ask me anything!
