    • Synopsis
    • “Possibilities” is an intimate documentary about Herbie Hancock and his in-studio collaborations with a dozen formidable pop recording artists, collaborations that explore the unexpected, like jazz improvisations.
      The film is also about how Herbie’s unique worldview shapes a creative environment that encourages artists to step outside the velvet prison of easy expectations. “The hip stuff,” Herbie tells Trey Anastasio, in a scene from the film, “is outside the comfort zone.”
      “Possibilities” follows Herbie over a year and a half collaborating with musical icons Carlos Santana, Sting, Angelique Kidjo, Annie Lennox and Paul Simon, young superstars Christina Aguilera, John Mayer, Trey Anastasio and Jonny Lang and newcomers Joss Stone, Raul Midon, Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan
