Movie Info

In 1986, when harmonica player Adam Gussow asked if he could jam with one-man band Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee, it was the beginning of an unforgettable collaboration--dubbed Satan & Adam. Amidst the racial tension in New York City, this Jewish Ivy League graduate and black Mississippi blues man made an unlikely pair, but their musical stylings perfectly aligned. After a chance encounter with members of U2 and a celebrated debut record, the duo rose to international acclaim from their Harlem street corner. But as quickly as they were discovered, their meteoric rise was cut short when Mr. Satan mysteriously disappeared. The result is an odyssey 23 years in the making that captures a miraculous journey of friendship, heartbreak and the transformative power of music.

The result feels as stirring as actually being in the audience for a Satan and Adam show.

Satan & Adam also takes a moment to look at the racial issues each of these men had to deal with - while at the same time having a mutual understanding that music has no eye for color of the skin, only color of the mind.

Documentarian V. Scott Balcerek... pieces together decades of footage, photos and interviews into a tapestry that is never less than heartening.
