Sterling Magee experienced firsthand the music industry’s exploitation of black musicians. So he walked away to play music on the Harlem streets. Re-inventing himself as Mr. Satan, he spread his gospel of joy. One of those he converted was a white kid named Adam Gussow, who gave up the ivory tower life to play alongside this streetwise musician. Their improbable bond made them a sensation, and their journey a tale of tragedy, survival and miraculous rebirth. Satan & Adam is a celebration of the transformative power of music, and the  bonds that develop when worlds collide and artists collaborate. “The best third act of any music doc since Searching for Sugar Man.” JB Spins
