DESIRE: THE CARL CRAIG STORY (Feature Documentary)

Official Selection Tribeca Festival 2024

Genre-defying music producer Carl Craig bridges elements within the spectrum of electronic music. He plays with notes from techno to jazz, not to mention he gathers audiences at night clubs and all the way to Carnegie Hall. Moving between dance floors in Detroit, London, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and all over the world, Desire: The Carl Craig Story tells the story of an artist whose music tells a story all of its own — one of struggle and joy in the city of Detroit, all while bringing techno music far beyond what the world ever expected. 

Told through Craig himself as well as the legions of artists that have played a part in his meteoric rise, Desire: The Carl Craig Story beautifully and boldly captures Carl’s extraordinary journey through music and beyond. Fans will recognize names like Gilles Peterson, Moodymann, Laurent Garnier, DJ Minx, and more, but everyone will be captivated by the personality and perseverance that shines through in his music, putting Carl’s story in conversation with some of the most pioneering artists working today.––Casey Baron
